In a three-ingredient recipe, ingredients are everything. Let’s say you have access to fresh, fizzy Coke and crackly ice cubes. Whiskey selection is paramount – the quality of your cocktail hangs in the balance.
That is how the team at The Tasting Panel Magazine saw it. Having just recently scored Weed Oak Cellars Straight Bourbon Whiskey a whopping 93 Points, the team singled out the spirit to mix with cola. By itself, Weed Oak Cellars Straight Bourbon Whiskey pours a beautiful amber brown with aromas of oak and roasted hazelnut on the nose. A vibrant caramel-honey core is accentuated by lingering, warm spices.
Using a simple one-part-whiskey, three-part-cola recipe, the team mixed together the cocktail, ingeniously naming it “Weed & Coke.” Weed Bourbon’s robust, pronounced flavors were not dulled by the richness of the soda, with the citrus tempering its sweetness. Its round, substantial mouthfeel perfectly complemented the effervescent cola.
Next time you’re in the mood for a classic, elevate it -- make it a Weed & Coke.
