Not gonna lie, I usually drink my whiskey all on its own. Every once in a while, I think it’s great in a cocktail especially if you have a flavored bourbon or something that’s a little too sweet to just sit and sip on. An Old Fashioned is a pretty classic bourbon drink, but we’ve covered that as Don Draper’s drink of choice here. So now that we know all about the different kinds of whiskey, let’s go over a few other good cocktails to have them all in.
