What To Mix With Whiskey?

Wondering what to mix with whiskey? You are in luck! Whiskey is one incredible base for mixed drinks and cocktails. Let me share some ideas below, on how you can use your whiskey as the base to a cocktail. 

  • Lemon or Lime Juice will help bring the woodiness out of the whiskey. 
  • Ginger ale or Lemon Lime Soda of course! I couldn’t miss including this in the list. 
  • Lemonade is a wonderful base, might sound weird but trust me! 
  • Club soda offers a nice fizz and bubble without changing the flavor too much. 
  • Apple Cider is a great base for fall and winter months where you want a warmer drink. 
  • Coffee for a kickstart of caffeine mixed with your whiskey.
