Whiskey Flip, first mentioned in 1695

Whiskey Flip, first mentioned in 1695

This summer, despite having a dissertation to write and finish I will likely have a lot of time on my hands. So I’m making a leap into the next part of gastronomy that I don’t have much experience with: cocktails.

I now work in a bar, and every time a customer asks me about cocktails I’m at a loss. I don’t really drink them. I know very little about spirits. I have practically no idea how to make a cocktail, even though I made my first one for a customer last week.

I made my Pintrest board and have started collecting recipes. Check it out and let me know if I’m missing some!

EDIT: Instead of being sensible and making a classic, I decided to innovate for my very first venture into the Cocktail School. I need a name for this heady combination of scotch whiskey, trappist dubbel, cold-brewed coffee, and butter. Yes. Butter.

I’m considering calling it Beginner’s Luck.
