Well, I do not think I have actually included a lot of cocktails with wine and whiskey, now have I? Apparently not! You see, I know you love wine as much as I do, but how about a little something for the wine AND whiskey lovers as well? If your answer is yes, come on! Let me talk to you about the cocktail recipe I am introducing to you today! If your answer is no, please people, bear with me cause you might like it after all!
Whiskey Bishop Cocktail is the recipe I am going to show you today! It’s made with a large part of Scotch Whiskey and the wine included in it is my lovely sweet Vermouth! (Yes, I know! I am quite in love with Vermouth for the last few cocktail recipe posts!) Both of these ingredients make a really interesting combination along with the orange juice and the green Chartreuse, a French liqueur made in fact out of 130 herbs and plants! No no no! You read that right! 130 plants and herbs have been used from monks along with alcohol, since 1737 to make this unique and strong liqueur! Are you intrigued? I definitely was when I overheard a bartender describing this excellent drink
