To Liquor with Love

Fuck Valentine’s day amirite. I mean aside from whatever new emotional Drake v-day card the internet has to share with us or bulk discounts on fancy chocolate, who really needs to waste their time waiting around for that annual bouquet of roses from the boo?

So alas we have alcohol, God’s gift to man that allows this vexed holiday to reign on supreme each year for the less fortunate in this game called love. Throw a blush accent on that bih and wah-lah! who said you weren’t being festive?

Here's two quick n' simply whiskey cocktails to whip up this weekend. Sip to the pace of Beyonce on repeat.

1.5 oz whiskey
1 oz plum syrup
.25 oz lemon juice
.25 oz ginger juice
One egg white
Fresh plum slices
Candied ginger


1. Combine all ingredients without ice so that the egg white will emulsify.

2. Add ice to shaker and re-shake so that the drink is chilled.

3. Strain over one cube in a rocks glass and garnish with candied ginger and plum slice.

4 oz of sparkling rosé
1.5 oz whiskey
.5 oz lavender bitters (or lavender mixer of choice)
