What to Mix with Honey Whiskey
Honey, We’re Home…with the Newest Flavor of Bird Dog Whiskey
At Bird Dog Whiskey, we’re proud as hell to introduce our newest flavor: Bird Dog Honey Flavored Whiskey. Crafted by infusing sweet, golden honey with our Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, it’s bottled at 80 proof (a little stronger than most 😁). It features delicious honey notes complemented with hints of wood char and light spice for a flawless finish.
But once you get it, what do you mix with honey whiskey for the perfect cocktail? It all depends on how you want to enjoy your honey whiskey cocktail, and what you choose to mix it with.
What to Mix with Honey Whiskey for a Little Something That’s Naturally Sweet
When you’re in the mood for sweetness and you want only the essentials, mixed as the cocktail gods intended, we recommend sticking with the basics. And what goes better with honey than a good, old-fashioned lemon? When combined, the two create an incredible flavor: a little sweet, a little tart, and crisp and refreshing all the way through.
But honey and lemon juice aren’t the only natural ingredients accompanying Bird Dog Honey Flavored Whiskey in the Frozen Peach Bees Knees Cocktail. For a cool, crisp sensation—and a punch of sweetness—we blend in frozen peaches, then top it all off with a slice of lemon. When you follow this recipe, all you need is nature’s bounty (and a few ounces of Bird Dog Whiskey, of course).
Frozen Peach Bees Knees Cocktail
- 1½ ounces honey whiskey
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey
- ½ cup frozen sliced peaches (4 or 5 large slices)
- 1 cup ice
- lemon slice
To mix, combine honey whiskey, lemon juice, honey, frozen peaches and ice in a blender; blend on high speed until smooth. Pour the cocktail into a cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of lemon, if desired.
