Cocktails were developed on American whiskeys including Bourbon & Rye.
In this class we’ll explore the origin of American whiskey cocktails by focusing on the ‘Classic 5’:
- Old Fashioned
- Whiskey Sour
- Mint Julep
- Whiskey Smash
The Kentucky Castle’s Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence (& Bourbon industry insider) Tim Knittel will guide you through basic cocktail construction theory including:
- Spirit + Sweet + Contrast(s) + Accent,
- Techniques: stirring vs. shaking and order of ingredients,
- Working with ice: hard, crappy & specialty ice
- Selecting whiskey for cocktails by flavor profile
You’ll get to taste each type of cocktail and then make your own!
