World Whiskey Day - May 21 - Recipes to Celebrate | Robyns.World

May 21 is World Whiskey Day!

Yes! World Whiskey Day is a day to celebrate whiskey and the wonderful cocktails you can make with it! Today I have two great drinks to share that use Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey that will be perfect to toast the day!

World Whisky Day is all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive. You can drink it however you enjoy it (ice, water, mixer – whatever works for you). The day is meant to be all inclusive and that means any kind of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world.

Cheers!
