When you’re trapped inside to avoid the dreaded “wintry mix”, a terribly bland yet dangerous concoction of various forms of H20, all you need to wet your whistles is a little creativity and whatever can be found in the kitchen + bourbon and whiskey.
Here are recipes guaranteed to lift your spirits and keep you entertained until you can safely leave home again:
THE FAUX-LD FASHIONED
Marmalade of questionable age
Muddle the marmalade and bitters til it’s good and smashed up
Add ice and bourbon
Serve in whatever glasses are clean.
THE SHAKE WEIGHT
(improvised whiskey sour)
1 shot ginger syrup (see below)
1 egg white
squeezed lime juice (should be lemons but we have limes so that’s how it is)
Add all ingredients to shaker and shake it to shit – see video.
Serve in oddly shaped glasses that someone bought at a flea market.
Enjoy and stay warm!
