We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we believe whiskey is best enjoyed neat. Simple. Elegant. No fuss.
But! That doesn’t mean that good whiskey cocktails are banned from our list. A classic Old Fashioned is never a bad place to start, as this is often our go-to. In taking a departure from the classic though, we’ve been indulging in two craft cocktails, masterminded by the skilled mixologists at Loyal Legion in Portland, Oregon. Featuring unexpected ingredients, they’re a great way to enjoy the essence of both Batch No. 1 and Batch No. 2 in a new light.
Its adventurous naming and dual whiskey + double bitters ingredients suit us perfectly. The mouth is warm and smokey, which really compliments Batch No. 1.
Garnish: demerara sugar
Channel your inner pop band tunes and you’ll likely conjure up this Gwen Stephani classic. The strong lyrics suit this cocktail perfectly. Are you ready? This one is a bit sassy.
Garnish: sugar with picked strawberry
You can make either of these at home, although the ingredients are a bit obscure or, stop into Loyal Legion and order one by name.
