I’m not a whiskey lover, my liquor of choice is typically vodka, but I have to admit this Whiskey Ginger Cocktail just may change that routine!
My boyfriend is a big whiskey aficionado. Every time he pours himself a drink (he drinks it neat) I give it a taste. I really want to love whiskey/bourbon. I love the smell, I love the after taste. I just can’t take the burn so I steer away from it. However, this Whiskey Ginger Cocktail I really, really enjoy!!! No burn, just good flavor!Print
