Episode 60 - Risky? Whisky (Part 3)

Drunk Monkeys - Episode 60 - Risky Whisky (Part 3)

Jen and Erica start off Season 9 of the show by revisiting an old friend, the age-your-own-bourbon kit Risky? Whisky. They started aging it eight months ago in Episode 39 and checked in on after four months in Episode 47. Now they’re ready to remove the wood chips and water it down to drinkable levels of alcohol.

And don’t forget that we have a live show coming up in just a few weeks. Drunk Monkeys had a Group Spotlight this week on the CWFF website, promoting our spot in the festival. Musical group Sad Banana will be performing in the same slot.

Episode 39 - Risky? Whisky

Drunk Monkeys - Episode 39 - Risky Whisky.

Friend-of-the-show (and just regular-friend-to-us) Peter Felonk gave us a gift of some Risky? Whisky, a “barrel your own bourbon” kit. We’ve seen home aging kits that have an actual tiny barrel, but they seem to all be over $100. This is a much more affordable solution (around $25) using wood chips in a mason jar. In this episode, Jen and Erica taste the unaged liquor and then start the aging process. We’ll be checking back in on the whisky over the coming months.

Maker's White Whisky Sour

Fuzzy asked for the recipe for the Maker's Mark White Whisky Sours--this is the recipe from the label on the bottle:

1 1/2 parts Maker's Mark White Whisky (I used 2 1/2 to 3 oz)
Sour Mix: equal parts simple syrup and lemon juice--I used a mix of lemon and lime juice for mine. (I used 2 oz of each)
A pinch of sea salt

Then I put it in a shaker with some ice, gave it a good swirl, poured all it if into a large rocks glass, and topped with club soda (courtesy of our Soda Stream).

HOOBOY it is good!
Word of warning: You will think that you need more than one, but in fact, you don't. Or maybe you do...
