A little "how to" with Brad White of White's Elixirs from Nashville, TN ...
My cocktail mixers are meant to do one thing: help anyone be a Rockstar home bartender and enjoy an amazing drink.
But my mixers are only half (usually--sometimes you may need a little club soda) of the equation. Unless a mocktail is your game, you need some booze!
I’m often asked, what spirit would you recommend for use with your cocktails.
While I have been known to use almost any priced spirit in making my own cocktails at home, when serving several people or planning for a party, stretching your libation budget is critical.
To get you mixing, serving, and cheers-ing, here is a list of high quality, affordable spirits you can use to make delicious classic cocktails. (Note that pricing can vary from one retailer to another.)
