Whiskey Wednesday: The Suffering Bastard

January 20th, 2016 Tags: ,

Image via: www.bichinlifestyle.tv Hump day comes with its highs and lows. High – only three more days until the weekend (aka you’ve almost made it. Hang in there!) Low – you still have three more days until the weekend (aka you better be coming home to a generous glass of brown water tonight or there […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Libertine

January 14th, 2016 Tags:

Image via: www.saveur.com Happy Whiskey Wednesday, Pioneers! Is it just us or does this Whiskey Wednesday feel like it couldn’t have come soon enough? These frigid January days must be getting to us already, which is exactly why we felt we needed to shake things up a bit and introduce a newer cocktail to start […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Alpine Rabbit

January 7th, 2016 Tags: ,

It’s January 6th and chances are you are one of millions of people already struggling to stick with your New Year’s resolutions. And the chances are even more likely that one of those resolutions is to eat healthier/not drink. Good luck with that by the way – in two weeks you’ll be back on the […]

NYE Cocktail: Cranberry Cheer

So we may have missed Whiskey Wednesday this week, but it’s because we were having too much fun concocting the perfect NYE cocktail for you.  Cranberry Cheer is sure to ring in your New Year the right way.  The best part of this cocktail is you can do most of the work ahead of time, enabling […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Hot Toddy

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, holiday work parties, and – for those still enjoying the last of their youth – college finals, it is inevitable that all the craziness of December will catch up with you sooner or later. Whether it comes in the form of a nasty cold, sleep deprivation, […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Rob Roy

Well Pioneers, with all the talk of the holidays and presents, you know we would never forget our weekly present for you – Whiskey Wednesday. (Admit it, this is the best part of your week). Today we are going back in time to a cocktail that many a-pioneer have turned to for its reliable, classic taste. […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Irish Coffee

December 3rd, 2015 Tags: ,

Well Pioneers, it is officially December, and with El Nino looming on the horizon, we bet you are adding a new layer to your wardrobe as each new day comes and goes (at least we are…). Therefore, we would be largely discrediting our whiskey expertise if we didn’t teach you how to make a proper Irish Coffee […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Stone Fence

November 25th, 2015 Tags: , ,

Thanksgiving is AWEsome. Tons of food, all of your friends and family back in town, and perhaps most importantly, it’s an excuse to stock up on lots of Lost Republic to celebrate the occasion (especially for those who are not so thrilled that all of your family will be in the same room together for […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The New Black

Don’t be put off by the name Pioneers, this delicious concoction was not inspired by everyone’s guilty pleasure (that is Orange Is The New Black for those of you who haven’t hopped on the Netflix bandwagon yet or haven’t been on the Internet in the past 2 years). Although not much is known about The […]

Whiskey Wednesday: Honey Rye

November 11th, 2015 Tags:

Looking for something light and refreshing, but still warms your belly?  We’ve got a little-known cocktail with huge potential – the Honey Rye. Perfect as a pre-dinner refreshment, paired with dinner, or an evening pick-me-up, the Honey Rye is as versatile as a cocktail can get. But then again, when isn’t it the right time […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Whiskey Sour

Cocktails are a funny thing. Like fashion and music, cocktails go through fads. It seems like every few months we hear about the “hottest” new cocktail, give it a try, hate it (most of the time), and never hear about it again. However, there are those few cocktails that are in it for the long-haul […]

Whiskey Wednesday: Nightmare on Bourbon Street

For those of you without children (and haven’t had decorations up and costumes picked out since September 30th), it may have not dawned on you yet that Halloween is quickly approaching — heads up, it’s this weekend. AND- it’s one a Saturday!  NO hangovers at work this year! No . No.  Chances are, you are going […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Brain Duster

October 21st, 2015 Tags:

This week’s Whiskey Wednesday cocktail speaks for itself with its daunting, yet creepily accurate name – The Brain Duster – the ultimate hump day treat for those of you trying to put Monday and Tuesday behind you and fast forward to the weekend. This infamous cocktail has gone under several names throughout its long history, […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Emerald

For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday we’re stealing a page out of all of our Irish Pioneer’s secret concoction book and introducing you to the Irish take on the Manhattan: The Emerald. And don’t worry, the only thing green about this drink is its name… It’s not quite St. Patrick’s Day yet (Although you can bet […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Millionaire

Photo By: Daniel Krieger   For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, we are featuring a drink that has definitely endured the ultimate test of time – The Millionaire. Invented during the Prohibition Era (it seems like every whiskey cocktail we feature was invented during this time. Pretty ironic considering it was the one time period when […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Sazerac

September 30th, 2015 Tags: , ,

                  We are taking a trip down South for this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, pioneers! And for all of you thinking Mexico, think again (this is a whiskey blog after all! Although we don’t mind a margarita every once in a while…). Grab your Mardi Gras beads because we’re […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Suburban

For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, we decided to go old school again and fill you in on a drink that dates back to the Roaring Twenties when the Prohibition was in full swing and speakeasies and bootleggers were rolling in cash – the Suburban. So basically, since the Suburban was invented and became popular during […]

Whiskey Wednesday: The Sea Captain’s Special

We’ve got something special in store for our loyal followers for this week’s Whiskey Wednesday: the ultimate hangover cure – that actually works! The infamous Sea Captain’s Special (or S.C.S. as us veterans like to call it) is a top-shelf hair of the dog that will get rid of your headache and get you out […]
