Thirsty Thursday: Whiskey Business
It’s low-carb, fat-free, heart-healthy, and can lower your risk of having a stroke. Yep, whiskey just might be the next super food! (OK, maybe not…but we can at least feel a little better about imbibing.)
The drink that was once used as currency in the 18th century still is considered as good as gold in our book. In fact, with 5,000 varieties, it’s hard to pick just one! That’s why we were so excited to discover the whiskey flight from W Hotel NYC! Yep, three cocktails using different types of whiskey, all mixed to perfection, and offered through November. Try the recipes below, and if you weren’t into whiskey before, you definitely will be now!
And did we mention that Hillary Clinton is a fan? (As if you needed another reason to pour yourself a shot.)
