Cascade Blonde Whiskey is a Good Investment

November 15, 2019 – As much as we all enjoy the Christmas and New Year season, it does come with its own stress and that includes entertaining and pocketbook issues.  Let’s face it, throwing a party can get expensive.  But we have a suggestion to alleviate some of the stress and it is cocktails with Cascade Blonde Whiskey.

Cascade Blonde, lighter in color than bourbon but still 40% ABV, is a different kind of American Whiskey. As the Drinkhacker described the nose, “…fruity and honey scented, with very mild wood notes.”   It’s certainly delightful for sipping, with or without ice, but it is perfect for mixing in cocktails.  And best of all, the MSRP is $19.99.  At that price point, we’ve been known to gulp and grimace but not with Cascade Blonde.

Below are two cocktail recipes that are easy, breezy and affordable but taste like a million bucks.
