Whiskey Cocktails ~ Brookline Sour

Our studio is in a GREAT neighborhood in Norwalk, CT.

We're nestled in-between 2 streets that have some of the best restaurants in the state!

One of our favorites (and where you'll find us tonight for happy hour), is Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar.

Almost a year ago we took a Whisky cocktail class at their Norwalk location and learned a few new tricks for mixing whiskies & bourbons.

A star from the evening was their Brookline Sour - that you can still find on the menu.

This one is made with white whisky from one of our favorite distilleries, High West.
