The King's Peg Cocktail Recipe

The King's Peg cocktail is a classic drink that combines the rich flavors of whiskey with the refreshing taste of citrus. This cocktail is perfect for those who enjoy a strong and sophisticated drink.

To make the King's Peg cocktail, you will need a few simple ingredients and some basic bartending skills. This recipe is easy to follow and can be enjoyed by both beginners and experienced mixologists.

Start by gathering your ingredients, which include whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and ice. Choose a high-quality whiskey that suits your taste preferences, whether it be a smooth bourbon or a smoky scotch.

Next, prepare your glass. Fill a rocks glass or an old-fashioned glass with ice to chill it. This will help keep your cocktail cold and refreshing.

In a mixing glass, combine 2 ounces of whiskey, 3/4 ounce of lemon juice, and 1/2 ounce of simple syrup. Add ice to the mixing glass and stir well for about 20 seconds. This will help to dilute the cocktail and blend the flavors together.

Once the cocktail is well mixed, strain it into the chilled glass. You can use a cocktail strainer or a fine-mesh sieve to remove any ice or citrus pulp from the drink.

Garnish your King's Peg cocktail with a lemon twist or a cherry for an added touch of elegance. The citrus oils from the twist will enhance the aroma of the drink and provide a burst of flavor with each sip.

Finally, sit back, relax, and enjoy your King's Peg cocktail. The combination of whiskey, lemon, and sweetness from the simple syrup creates a balanced and refreshing drink that is sure to impress your guests.

Whether you're hosting a cocktail party or simply looking to unwind after a long day, the King's Peg cocktail is a perfect choice. Its classic flavors and timeless appeal make it a true cocktail staple.
