March brings two seasonal favors – the luck of the Irish and over-the-top, sumptuously delicious whiskey cocktails. And with so many spirits to choose from, and to keep the SPIRIT high, Ocean Blue World has rounded up 3 favorites from around the world. Cheers!
Here’s the scoop:
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
Nothing says let the good times roll more than the city of New Orleans. And with a straight rye whiskey that’s been rooted in the magic city since the 1800’s – when saloons found refuge in quaint coffee houses – there’s no better drink of choice we can recommend than this vanilla meets licorice smooth whiskey blend. What’s more, the Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey became so beloved by Royal Street locals that they even named a cocktail after it, the “Sazerac,” America’s first branded mixed libation. So if you’re looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a cocktail just as rich in history as the Irish culture, than tempt your taste buds on this big easy original.
The GlenLivet 18 Year Old Whiskey
An ultra luxurious whiskey that’s elegantly colored in gold and apricot and filled with notes of sweet oranges, fruits, and toffee. The GlenLivet 18 Year Old Whiskey is a potion palate puncher that every man should keep on store. Suggested to pair with a fillet mignon or foie gras, this succulent sip is one that’s meant to be adored. And on St. Patrick’s Day, what better way to give it pride of place than to heading to your favorite Irish tavern, feasting your eyes on a gastronomic plate, and righteously ordering a glass to taste.
Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon
The Kentucky Derby’s oldest friend. Woodford Reserve. The official bourbon whiskey of the thoroughbred’s most iconic racetrack, Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a sip to savor. Comprised of over 200 notes, from bold grain and wood to sweet and spicy aromatics, this premium spirit is ideal for a cozy winter evening. So we recommend snuggling up next to the couch and surprising your loved one with a bottle of Woodford Reserve. We assure, it will be their lucky day.
