№3 – 16.2 Ounce Classic Cocktail Recipe Glass
The whiskey sour is the fried-egg sandwich of American mixology: simple, easy, reliable in a pinch. It’s as nourishing, too, and palate-cleansing in the way only something sour can be. Make this recipe with bourbon or rye, which has a tanginess that mixes well, about half a lemon’s worth of juice, and a simple garnish—a maraschino cherry or a citrus wedge will do the trick. There’s nothing wrong sipping an easy cocktail.
The Cocktail Glass
Although people might argue about the extent a glass has on cocktail or spirit taste, there’s no denying that beautiful glassware tends to be perceived as being higher quality. Many glasses, like the martini glass, are classic and have been used with certain cocktails for decades. Others, like the more recent NEAT glass, are designed to accentuate the aromas of spirits.
In order to promote a well-rounded drinking experience, you should try to stock your bar with a number of these glasses. Specific glassware will show your patrons that you’re serious about the art of alcohol. Also, because many customers probably don’t have individual glass pairings at home, they’ll remember that special experience they had drinking a nice Irish Coffee out of an authentic Irish Coffee glass at your bar.
This class is also called the Old Fashioned glass, the Rocks glass, or the Tumbler. Unlike a mixing glass, this short glass is designed so you can build the cocktail inside the glass it’s being served in. The Lowball glass has a thick base to allow ingredients to be muddled in the glass before the spirit is added. Its rim wide brim lets the drinker appreciate the drink’s aroma and the shape allows the drink to warm slowly, discretely changing the flavor profile. Avoid using this glass for vodka drinks because vodka is best cold.
Typically, this glass is used for smaller, higher-proof pours like hard spirit-based cocktails that have a limited amount of mix or straight spirits with ice (on the rocks). Originally, this glass held two ounces but now there are usually two sizes for a broader cocktail application. Now a standard Low Ball glass holds about 6-ounces and a double holds 12-16.
A Highball glass, also called the Collins glass or the Delmonico glass, is taller than an Old Fashioned glass. Each name is used to describe a variation of the basic shape: the Highball glass is shorter and wider, the Collins glass is straight and narrow, and the Delmonico is the shortest and somewhat flared. Traditionally, each glass variation is used for a different type of cocktail: the gin fizz going in a Highball, a Tom Collins in a Collins glass, and a Rickey going in a Delmonico glass. Although some mixologists abide by these rules, the important thing to note is tall and narrow shaped glasses are better for keeping a drink cold and carbonated because of the limited surface area.
The Highball glass is best used for serving highball cocktails, a family of mixed drinks that are made with an alcoholic base spirit and a larger portion of non-alcoholic mixer such as a Rum & Coke or a Gin & Tonic.
This type of glass is for customers who want to take a shot (have a drink in one sip). Usually this drink is simply a single liquor or spirit or for a small extra strength cocktail. Shot glasses come in a variety of shapes and sizes like basic, short, tall, and fluted. You can stock your bar with any variation of these.
A Cosmo glass has an elegant look. It resembles a martini glass but instead of a stem, it has a foot. This glass is great for Cosmopolitans (obviously) and a variety of other cocktails. The tapered design showcases the colors of the cocktail and draws the flavors and aromas to the top.
This glass is usually used for aged brown spirits such as whiskey, brandy, and fine rums. It has a very short stem so the drinker’s hand will slowly warm the drink and a large bowl so the drink can be swirled. The mouth is shorter so the aromas are trapped, allowing the drinker to enjoy a more intense smell as they sip.
This glass was developed by New Orleans tavern owner Pat O’Brien in the 1940s and named after its hurricane, lamp-like shape. It’s used for a variety of drinks, specifically for tropical cocktails. The glass has a curvy and tall shape made up of a tulip-shaped bowl and a bulbous base. It also features a short stem and a small foot. This glass was originally used for the Hurricane Cocktail, a rum-based cocktail, but it is also used for cocktails like the Blue Hawaii and the Pina Colada.
Moscow Mule Mug
The Moscow Mule has been served in a copper mug since it first appeared in the the 1940s. The metal quickly takes on the cold temperature of the drink, offering a cooler sensation to the drinker. The copper and the mug handle help to keep the drink cold for a long period of time and the material is also great at deflecting the heat from the sun.
As far as the taste, the copper mug helps to enhance the individual flavors of the vodka, ginger beer, and lime. When the drink is poured, the copper begins to oxidize and slightly boosts the aroma and taste of vodka, the lime juice’s acidity is reduced and its tangy citrus notes are heightened, and the ginger beer becomes more bubbly.
This glass is pretty much a shorter version of a wine glass. It’s used for drinks with a base spirit, a sweetener, lemon or lime juice, and traditionally egg white like a Whiskey Sour or an Amaretto Sour. The glass has a thick stem to provide stability and a narrow top to boost and intensify drink aromas.
Considered to be an elegant glass, the cordial resembles a wine glass but it’s more delicate, thinner, and holds less alcohol. usually the cordial is used for after-dinner liqueurs or for cocktails at events. Cordials are small because they are meant to be sipped from slowly. They have large bowls that allow you to swish the liquid around to release the flavor and aroma.
As The Luxury Spot says
Whiskey not only helps to prevent cholesterol from building up in your arteries, but it can actually help to get rid of any cholesterol present in your blood vessels at the moment. It will also help to relax the walls of your arteries, ensuring that your blood can flow without obstruction.
Having a cold or the flu is miserable. The scratchy sore throat. The shivers. The stuffy nose. It’s no fun at all. Thankfully, whisky can ease the symptoms. A hot toddy, which is made of whisky, honey, lemon juice, and hot water can provide some relief.
The alcohol also dilates your blood vessels, which makes it easier for your mucus membranes to deal with the infection.
Here’s a simple recipe to get you started
This is obvious, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it. Plain and simple, whisky is absolutely delicious. The multiple layers of flavor, the initial burn of the alcohol, the hints of vanilla and caramel. It’s a true sensory, sensual experience. Perhaps this is why George Bernard Shaw said, “Whisky is liquid sunshine.”
Scotch Whiskey Punch.
Steep the thin yellow shavings of lemon peel in the whiskey, which should be Glenlivet or Islay, of the best quality; the sugar should be dissolved in boiling water. As it requires genius to make whiskey punch, it would be impertinent to give proportions. (see “Spread Eagle Punch”,No.39.)
Dissolve the sugar well with wine-glass of the water, then purr in the whiskey, and add the balance of the water, sweeten to taste, and put in a small piece of lemon rind, or a thin slice of lemon.
Fill two-thirds full of shaved ice.
Stir with a spoon, and ornament the top with fruits in season. (Use small bar glass.)
The brandy sour is made with the same ingredients as the brandy fix, omitting all fruits except a small piece of lemon, the juice of which must be pressed in the glass.
Shake with ice and strain into chilled sour glass.
Garnish with a half-slice of lemon and a maraschino cherry.

There is Nothing Like Magners!
Sports events and occasional live music complete the genuine feeling of a traditional Irish pub. Live gigs usually kick off at 7:00 P.M. It’s advisable to get in at least forty minutes before the band starts to play, otherwise it’s very likely you’re not going to get a place.
Most of the time, the majority of guests eventually join the singing, led by quite a few 100 per cent genuine Irish people sitting at the bar, chatting up a bartender or a server. As they say at Johnnie Fox’s, it’s easy to combat Vancouver weather with the artillery of an Irish bar:
I can’t think of anything better to combat this Vancouver weather… pour me another Guinness, please. Guinness is the perfect remedy for a dark, rainy evening… Oh, and yorkies wouldn’t hurt either.
Waiting for Customers
As far as the whisky’s concerned, you’ve got a few options to go for, but in general, they only offer Scotch and Irish brands. Our pick for the Snug is definitely Bushmills 16-year and Bushmills Black Bush — both of them very good value. This is a bar that screams “Bushmills” from the first moment you open the door until the last empty glass you leave at the bar.

Spiced Apple Cider Of course, it’s much better to be drinking whiskey with friends then drinking it alone. So, here’s my pick for a autumnal punch that’s good for sharing with others…perhaps on Thanksgiving. I don’t have a consistent recipe; I just put a half gallon of cider in the slow cooker with a bunch of mulling spices then shake it up with ice, or serve warm. But, this recipe from Jewels of New York looks like they’ve worked out the portions just right, so I’ll be trying this as the turkey roasts this year.
The Maple Leaf This year, I’ve been learning and experimenting with how different sweetners affect the taste of a drink: white sugar vs. raw sugar vs. gum syrup vs. agave vs. honey, etc, etc. The results? A lot, especially if it’s the most distinguishable sweetner of all – maple syrup. You can’t ever hide its characteristic…um, mapleness, so you might as well embrace it.
Shake with ice, and serve in a mason jar. It’s basically a whiskey sour, but with a bit more character. And, if you want to enjoy one with your breakfast pancakes, we won’t judge.

That’s a crazy cheap price. 750ml? posted 2015-Apr-6, 9:00 pm AEST ref: whrl.pl/RegBdy posted 2015-Apr-6, 9:00 pm AEST blergen writes…
For an Aussie whiskey, I second Hellyer’s Road. It’s pretty damn good. Fruity, a little caramel, and not bad value for the price. Sullivan’s Cove is obviously pretty good, but Hellyer’s Road is a very enjoyable dram.
Sullivan’s Cove –> Lark –> Hellyers Road > Starward (Vic)
Lark is a very beautiful drop. Even rivals the Sullivan’s Cove in my opinion. If you can, grab the cask strength one. I had one which was about 64% ABV and you would never know it drinking it. A dash of water and it was just sublime.
Found the 10yo Hellyer’s a ‘nice’ whisky, but ultimately not that fantastic. Lacked character and wasn’t as gentle as some of the others. The Pinot Noir Cask by Hellyer’s I found a little more interesting as it has a bigger flavour palate and more of a dark fruits flavour, but still wasn’t overwhelmed by it.
Glenlivet – if you must go down the blended route, this is ok.
This stuff is fantastic
I’ve tried the 1and it was awesome. Also alot of praise everywhere. Wouldn’t mind trying to upper stuff but that applies to all whiskies haha. (off topic: Starting to get into cognac as well.. Merkow VSOP being the first one. I love gentleman spirits such as whiskies and cognacs!)
Yes, and no ref: whrl.pl/RegCQl posted 2015-Apr-7, 1:1pm AEST bumwau writes…
I’ve tried starward and its so expensive!
But with whisky, given that there are so many other good whiskies are a cheaper price point i.e market is already competitive, it is rather hard to expect to be highly successful trying to sell super expensive stuff that’s not readily available.

Not related to whiskey but just got sent a promotional email that Dan Murphy’s has a stocktake clearance on at the moment but only applies to deliveries.
Not sure if this link will work ref: whrl.pl/RegEQi posted 2015-Apr-7, 9:5pm AEST
My list for fine whiskeys would be any of the the following brands: – Macallan: any age but I’ve only ever had the 1and 1year olds. The 2is out of my per bottle budget range
I prefer Macallan myself. I normally get the 1for everyday and the 1for special occasions. A friend of mine had a bottle of the 2and it’s excellent. A fuller version of the 1with a faint fruity darker taste. Too close to the 1to justify the price tag. ref: whrl.pl/RegNlO posted 2015-Apr-10, 10:0am AEST
Help me!!! I am alcohol addict
There comes a point where people find sanctuary in alcohol. That’s the point where it all starts to fall down. Despite the fact, we agree or not, that remains to be the truth. Our sensibility depends on our realization.
The times when one has a drink or two for unwinding or for pleasure would be gone when one becomes dependant on alcohol. You become so dependant that you need alcohol to function in daily life. This is where it starts to affect you very bad. All this has a very negative impact on your life, health, relationships etc.
