Mint Julep

A Mint Julep is a Bourbon based cocktail that also contains sugar syrup, crushed ice, and of course, fresh mint. It is thought that the Mint Julep originated in the southern United States, during the eighteenth century.

Traditionally, spearmint is the mint of choice used in a Mint Julep, especially if you come from Kentucky. However, there are plenty of recipes that just call for the use of mint leaves, not specifically spearmint.

Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned cocktail is a whisky based drink that is made by muddling sugar with bitters and then adding the alcohol. It is traditionally served in a short tumbler, called an Old Fashioned glass, named after the drink. It is garnished with a twist of citrus zest.

The drink was developed during the 19th century and given its name in the 1880s and is an International Bartenders Association official cocktail.

Whisky Sour

A Whisky Sour is a cocktail containing whisky, lemon juice, sugar syrup and a dash of egg white. It is traditionally garnished with a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.

The oldest historical mention of a whisky sour was published in the Wisconsin newspaper, Waukesha Plain Dealer, in 1870. Still popular today, the Whisky Sour is a cocktail that has stood the test of time.

Godfather

The Godfather is a duo mixed drink made of amaretto and Scotch whisky. It is traditionally served over ice in an old-fashioned glass.

The origins of the Godfather are not entirely clear but Disaronno, an Italian amaretto liqueur producer claim that the cocktail, which appeared sometime in the 1970s, was a favourite of Marlon Brando, who played Vito Corleone in The Godfather movies.

Manhattan

A Manhattan cocktail is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. Typically, rye is the traditional whiskey of choice in a Manhattan but some mixologists prefer using Canadian whisky, bourbon, blended whiskey or Tennessee whiskey. Generally, the cocktail is stirred then strained into a cocktail glass and garnished with a twist of orange zest or Maraschino cherry.

It is thought that the Manhattan cocktail originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City in the early 1870s. However as there are prior references to various similar cocktail recipes called "Manhattan" in the 1860s, the exact history is uncertain.
