Whiskey fans can enjoy their favorite spirit in style with this simple blended whiskey cocktail served in a cocktail glass with a hint of fruit. Like its whiskey martini counterparts, the Manhattan and Algonquin, the Fancy Whiskey is a great way to display your favorite whisky in an up drink. Choose a Canadian whisky for a smooth "fancy" or a Scotch for a smoky "fancy," and if that doesn't fancy you the range of bourbons can bring an array of different tasting cocktails. Once you find one the works for your tastebuds you'll likely be hooked on this drink.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces blended whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce superfine sugar
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • Dash of bitters
  • Lemon twist for garnish

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with the lemon twist.
