I know you’ve seen the beautiful burgers served at The Whiskey, the restaurant and lounge on Sand Lake Road, but you won’t be surprised to know that The Whiskey also specializes in cocktails.
Whiskey cocktails, at that. And one of its signature concoctions is the Annie Oakley, a straight shooter made with Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond with some blackberry puree.
Despite the puree, the cocktail isn’t sweet – that’s thanks to some chili bitters.
Watch the video with bartender Kelli Whitney, then give the cocktail a try.
Here’s the recipe:
2 ounces Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond bourbon whiskey
1/2 ounce Blackberry Puree
2 dashes Hella Smoked Chili Bitters
1/2 ounce Simple syrup
Katie Zagaroli, owner of The Whiskey, says to make your own blackberry puree, wash some fresh blackberries and put them in a food processor or blender along with some sugar then give them a whirl. Start with just a little sugar and add more if you like.
