Cocktails & Spirits

Need recs for spirits for mixing classic cocktails (brandy, cognac, rye, whiskey, bourbon, apricot brandy)

SBackes | Apr 13, 201207:50 AM     14

We currently have Maker's Mark bourbon (and a mini of Knob Creek).....stick with those or is there something better? Old Weller or Woodford maybe?? Prefer sweet & smooth

For the rye I was thinking of Old Overholt because its cheap and gotten good reviews ;)

No ideas on the brandy , cognac or whiskey (can I just use bourbon when a recipe calls for "whiskey")?

Apricot brandy....I have available Leroux, Hiram Walker and Jacquins OR I could use Rothman Winter Orchard Apricot instead. See another recipe calls for peach brandy.....same brands available

thanks!
