Cheers to it finally being race weekend! Jacob Cantu, tasting room manager at West Fork Whiskey Co. and Ally Hall, Indiana sales manager at West Fork Whiskey Co. joined us today to share some tasty and simple recipes for the glasses you’ll be raising at home, including ready-made options.
First, they show us how to make a whiskey sour, a great summer cocktail that’s easy to make with just a few ingredients you can find in your kitchen.
They say what’s great about this cocktail is you can also make different variations for fun twists.
Then for something a tad bit easier, they also have Mint Condition Whiskey Smash canned cocktail, as well as their Cold Hamer canned cocktails.
For another option, if you want to mix your cocktail with as little effort as possible, they have ready-made cocktail mixers available where all you need to do is pour into your favorite spirit.

It’s August, which means we still have a little bit of summer left. So let’s beat those muggy temps with a refreshing cocktail. Mike Stone of Jeptha Creed Distillery is sharing three cocktails today, and one of them is a grownup milkshake!
Jeptha Creed is a farm to table, women owned craft distillery in Shelbyville, KY. These crafted spirits are made with Non-GMO, estate grown heirloom varietal bloody butcher corn.
Jeptha Creed Original Vodka shaken as a martini with fresh and tart grapefruit juice with the earthy balance from basil leaves.
This cool treat you loved as a kid now can have a mature appearance creating more robust flavors to a classic milkshake.
