Want to know what we drink? These are key to a well-stocked cabinet.
Gin — Hendricks (Can’t say enough good things about this gin. An amazingly smooth flavor, you can have gin and tonic without any limes). New Amsterdam (Don’t want to drop the $34 for Hendricks? This is a good little straight gin with a sweeter, less fruity taste).
Vodka — Skyy 90 (A very clean, tasty vodka. Plus, it’s made with top 1% of Kansas winter wheat). Absolut Vanilla (Need a Dreamsicle in a pinch? Throw a shot of this in with some OJ, baby you got a stew going on!)
Scotch/Blended — Johnnie Walker Red Label (As blasphemous as blended scotch may be, this is a solid, oaky scotch that won’t break the bank).
Scotch/Single Malt — The Macallan 12 Year. It’s a Speyside scotch, so it has a nice smokey flavor that goes great on the rocks, but is killer in cocktails.
Bourbon — Jim Beam (A good day-to-day bourbon that’s affordable). Maker’s Mark (For your higher-end guests).
Tequila — Don Julio Anejo (Not a big fan of tequila honestly, but this is a smooth choice, even though it can run upwards of $50. Only one I drink.)
Rum — Bacardi (of course)
Liqueurs — White Creme de Cacao (Mr. Boston), Dark Creme de Cacao (Mr. Boston), Grenadine (Rose’s),
