Chris maintained that less-is-best approach when he whipped up two cocktails for House of Walker®, starting with Red Means Go: Johnnie Walker® Red Label®, Calvados, fresh lemon juice, and two stone fruit liqueurs (Cherry Heering® + Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot) in place of the sugar. "This drink ended up being the belle of the ball because it happened to be really effing cold during the week, and those Fall/Wintery flavors blended really well together."
As for his Old Fashioned-style Walk Don't Run (named for The Ventures’ song), "The Walker worked very well with the more herbal notes of the other ingredients, and as the large cube of ice started to melt, the cocktail developed, continuing to show more layers, letting you know 'hey, you're drinking scotch, but you're still drinking a cocktail here’.”
Chris’ favorite glass, though, is just plain whisky. Why? "Tradition. Plain and simple. They make it like they like to drink it.” That is definitely no joke.
