Here are a few drinks:
Whiskey Spiked Peach Iced Tea
1 quart cold water
6 black tea bags
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups peach nectar
Your favorite whiskey (recommended: Jack Daniels)
Fresh peach slices, for garnish
Mint sprigs, for garnish
Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; remove from the heat, add tea bags, and let steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and stir in sugar until dissolved. Transfer to a pitcher, add peach nectar, and stir to combine. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Fill tall glasses with ice and then pour peach tea over, leaving some room at the top for the whiskey. Stir in 1 shot of whiskey to each glass and garnish with a peach slice and fresh mint sprig.
3/4-ounce sweet vermouth
2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey (Any Jack Daniels...see a trend?)
Dash Angostura bitters
2 to 3 ice cubes
1 maraschino cherry
1 orange peel twist
Combine vermouth, whiskey, and a dash of bitters with 2 to 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass. Stir gently so as not to cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils, but don't drop it in.
