The Whiskey Lush – A Whiskey Cocktail

A perfect whiskey cocktail for the fall! Cheers!



Cold winter nights can make a person yearn for warmer climes, and any drink that can evoke some images of warm exotic locations like tropical islands or the spice markets of the Mediterranean. This drink does both, combining the tropical sweetness of pineapple with the spicy warmth of a spiced honey simple syrup. Add in a dram of whiskey and before you know it, some of those winter blues will slip away!

We used the same spiced syrup that we used in our Holiday Honey Punch, which has a sweet and spicy warmth that brings a great complex sweetness to the drink. Adding in some great Cut Spike Single Malt Whiskey makes this drink a fantastic winter sipping drink!

  1. Ooooo this sounds right up my alley! Never would have thought to pair whiskey & pineapple juice together, but now I’m going to have to.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. It’s not overly whiskey strong, you could totally use bourbon! The bitters are amazing – from Colorado, we bought all 5 that they offer – they are fantastic!
