I am not always proud of my freelance work writing food articles for Examiner.com (and even less proud of the near-illiteracy I see elsewhere on that site), but I'm going to suck it up and show you something because I am SO EXCITED to try bourbon and, coming soon, whiskey from Wyoming Whiskey. They were the first distillery to open in Wyoming (2009) and they're a truly home-grown operation. Check out info and some of my favorite recipes here.
And the best cocktail of all utilizing whiskey:
2 ounces rye whisky
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1 dash grenadine
1 egg white (this could make it through two drinks to save on the waste)
Shake with cracked ice thoroughly, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
