When you’re serving whiskey you can do it in a variety of ways. Some people like it neat. Some people like it on the rocks. And some people take it with a little bit of soda, some ginger ale.
So serving whiskey neat you can do in a snifter or shot glass, depending on how you’re going to take it. Something you want to savor, though. Use a nice glass. Something you can get your hand on, warm up a little bit.
For scotchs, for instance, you might want to take a little bit of water that’s not distilled or tap or mineral water. It’s just good old east river punch. A few drops will open up the bouquet wonderfully. It spreads the oils around. It moves across your pallet a little more slowly. You get a little more enjoyment from it. You can see there’s a bit of oil on the glass. Gets a little thinner when you add the water to it. Dilutes the alcohol proof but not actually the flavor.
Serving on the rocks, on the other hand. My hands are very clean, trust me. Take a few nice size cubes. You can use your refrigerator’s ice tray but the less surface area you have on your cubes the slower it will dilute. But it still changes energy at the same rate so it’s going to cool your drink but not dilute it as quickly. That’s why we use nice, large, cold draft ice here at Rye House. And for that, you know, just pour it right on. You can give it a quick little stir to make sure it gets even contacts. But mostly whiskey on the rocks is a simple and beautiful thing.
Finally, you can make a quick and easy drink with it. Take a highball glass, a Collins glass, load it up with ice. Get some scotch, a little ginger ale. It’s been a long night. Maybe you have a diabetic problem. I don’t know. I don’t mind. It’s all soft and it’s all delicious. Make yourself a nice little highball and it’s easy.
You can also make stirred and shaken cocktails. But really, for the simple, easy enjoyment of whiskey these three will never fail you.
And that’s a quick way to serve whiskey.
