The Flight of the Cacao cocktail.

What do you get when you hand a bottle of the new Black Grouse whiskey to a proclaimed New York City mixologist and say, "Make me what you will"? A fantastic tasting cocktail. Frank Cisneros of the Gin Palace whipped up this sweet cocktail that highlights the whiskey's smokiness with a bit of citrus and — you guessed it — crème de cacao.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
