The Whiskey Lush – Honey and Whiskey Cocktail Recipes

Share this...

Last Updated on June 6, 2023 by The Noms

A perfect whiskey cocktail for the fall! Cheers to this honey and whiskey cocktail!


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!

Honey and Whiskey

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!

I am not a huge fan of whiskey but I can drink bourbon, like my hubby drinks, if I can cut it with some fruit juice! I am interested in trying the bitters!

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!
