There's a reason why they call it a "whiskey coat," folks. We believe no other liquor gets you adequately prepared to conquer frigid temperatures like whiskey, whether you're heading outdoors or bemoaning the drafty windows in your apartment. Hey, why not throw some Champagne into the mix, right? Or anything that sparkles? We're not picky, but we do think you should make this winter whiskey fizz by DrinksMadeEasy. Now watch the video and hop to it. 

Winter Whiskey Fizz

Yield: 1 cocktail

  • 1 ounce bourbon
    • 1½ tablespoons cider honey syrup
    • ½ cup honey
    • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

    • 1 cup orange juice
    • 3 large sprigs rosemary
  • 1 ounce sparkling wine (such as Champagne or prosecco)
