Ingredients list for a perfect Friday evening; it must kick off a three day weekend, cool crisp evening air, a fire in the back yard pit and the perfect sipping sensation.
Here in the Northwest, it is the last weekend of summer before school begins. Gathering friends together for great food, delicious cocktails and engaging fellowship is what an excellent long weekend is all about. I’ll save a seat for you.
I firmly believe that Bourbon and fire are splendid companions and Shaun the Bartender has a superb cocktail for sharing with great friends this holiday weekend. While Shaun likes this soothing libation just before the sandman comes calling, I prefer to toss one or two down while watching flames lick the cool evening air.

When I get done having a nice hearty meal, I find myself looking for something to finish it off that will get me more relaxed and ready for sleep. A nice creamy cocktail is always the way to go under these circumstances. – Shaun Daugherty
When I drink Whiskey, I like it neat. In Shaun’s write up of this cocktail on his site, he had written, “there are some mass produced brands out there that are made to be part of a cocktail”. That is fact, and when I am out on the town, a fantastic cocktail with Whiskey as the main ingredient is always my first choice.
Silent Third Cocktail
2 ounces Scotch Whisky
1 ounce Cointreau
Juice of 1 Lemon
Method: In a mixing glass filled with ice, add the scotch and cointreau. Squeeze in two halves of lemon. Cap off with a tin and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon.
This drink is sometimes made with equal parts of each ingredient, but in my opinion, it hides too much of the base ingredient when doing it this way. Here’s the way I like to make this scotch whisky cocktail. I hope you enjoy.
