More Slane Irish Whiskey Cocktails to Make At Home During Isolation

With bars and restaurants around the country currently closed, many of us are forced to play the role of bartender while in self-isolation. Thankfully, Slane Irish Whiskey has enlisted 20 mixologists from across the US to come up with some easy-to-recreate cocktail recipes with their At-Home Bar program.

With the At-Home Bar program, bartenders across the US were hired by Slane Irish Whiskey to show the difference between Irish whiskey vs scotch as well as to showcase their very best cocktails created at home using simple ingredients and Slane Irish Whiskey because we could all use a drink – and a distraction – right about now.

Enjoy these cocktail recipes and try experimenting with some concoctions of your own – from the safety of your home, of course.
