Whiskies are prime base spirits for winter cocktails with their warming tones, unique flavors and of course ability to pair well with the flavors of the season. Hiram Walker’s seasonal Gingerbread liqueur works easily with whiskey and bourbon. Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey contains distinct notes of dark, robust beer head in the finish which pairs wonderfully with Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur. It causes the gingerbread flavor to pop with crispness especially when topped with Zipang Sparkling Sake. This makes the Rocky Mountain Ginger Crisp cocktail pleasing to both men and women.
