According to The Independent, bourbon cocktails are going to be big in 2019. In the newspaper’s list of 2019’s ten most popular cocktails, bourbon brews filled out a third of the list, with a tried-and-true classic coming out on top …
The Old Fashioned
The old fashioned topped The Independent‘s list for the fifth year in a row, showing that the classic combination of whiskey, bitters, and muddled sugar isn’t that old-fashioned after all.
The Whiskey Sour
The whiskey sour clocked in at number three on The Indpendent‘s list, meaning whiskey-based cocktails took two of the top three spots. Mix a bit of whiskey (we recommend Wicked Harvest, obviously), lemon juice, sugar, and a dash of egg white, and you’ve got the makings of one of the year’s most popular cocktails.
Just a little bit further down the list, at number five, the classic Manhattan was named “one of 2019’s best cocktails” by 40 percent of the bartenders The Independent polled. And why wouldn’t it be? There’s not much better than the combination of smooth vermouth, whiskey, and bitters.
