Normally I am not a fan of flavored store bought liquors. I prefer to make them myself like: Watermelon Infused Tequila, Blackberry Thyme Infused Vodka, and Spicy Cucumber Gin. However, when my husband brought home some Ole Smokey Mango Habanero Whiskey, and I had a sip of it, I was in love! It was sweet and hot. The heat was almost a little too much for me, but I figured it would be perfect in a cocktail. I wanted to make sure that all of the flavor of the mango and the habanero came through, so treating it as simple as possible was the goal. One of my favorite ways to drink whiskey is a simple whiskey sour, so Mango Habanero Whiskey Sour seemed like the perfect choice.
I was right, this cocktail was amazing. A whiskey sour in it’s simplest form is whiskey, some sort of sour, and some sort of sweet. For this I used the Mango Habanero Whiskey, lime juice, and simple syrup. I’ve had mango salad with lime and thought that the lime juice would complement the mango flavoring of the whiskey. This was so good! The heat was still there, so it kept this a sipping cocktail, but it was tempered a bit with the simple syrup. This has become one of my favorite cocktails!
