Day 5: 12 Days of Recipes 2020 - Vegan Whisky Sour

Our annual 12 days of recipes continues! These recipes and features make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and are must-haves for the serious cook during the holiday season!

Day 5: Holiday Cocktails (Vegan Edition)

On the fifth day of recipes, we're featuring Mojo Jojo Pickles, Preserves and Syrups. Fantastic local must-haves for the mixologist who loves Local! Today's cocktail recipe is a twist on a classic made vegan though the surprisingly satisfying addition of aquafaba (the liquid drained from a can of chickpeas). The perfect excuse to make a cocktail while you're waiting for your hummus to blend, or your chili to simmer. Add a few Brandied Saskatoons to your drink and you're living the dream.

These would be great in a Brockmans gin martini.
