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 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.
