Whether it’s a $20 bottle of Jack or a six-figure bottle of scotch, whiskey has a place in everyone’s bar cart. In Whiskey Cocktails ($50), world-renowned mixologist Brian Van Flandern curates a selection of over 50 whiskey-based cocktails that you can mix at home. Well, sort of. While Van Flandern includes whiskey cocktail staples like the mint julep, he also throws in some truly top-shelf choices like the Rippin Mint Mule — a riff on the Moscow Mule, mixed with Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year instead of vodka. Here are three whiskey cocktails from Van Flandern’s new book for you to mix at home. Whiskey Cocktails, published by Assouline, is available to buy right now.
