It’s no secret that we love a good cocktail around here. I mean, we have more than a couple of recipes on our site! So, any time we have a chance to create a new concoction featuring a delicious new spirit, we jump at the chance. Our friends at Virginia Black Whiskey sent us a stunning bottle of their whiskey, and we couldn’t wait to give it a try.

Virginia Black Whiskey is a collaboration between Brent Hocking, Founder & Creator of the original Deleón Tequila & Award-Winning Artist, Songwriter, Rapper and Actor, Drake. A shared passion for style, music, and the pursuit of taste brought them together on a quest to redefine whiskey. The result of their attention to detail is a whiskey that is smooth, yet substantial. The flavor is absolutely decadent! Plus, how stunning is the bottle?

We first sampled this whiskey over ice and it was DELICIOUS. We decided to take things one step further with a cocktail recipe that is light and refreshing – equally perfect for ringing in the new year or enjoying at happy hour.
