A delicious go-to cocktail is a must have in anyone’s repertoire. I’ve always known that whiskey is my drink of choice, but I’ve never refined my selection and narrowed down my flavor profile. Today, I’m doing just that and sharing a nice drink we’re calling the Spicy Rock Lobster cocktail featuring George Dickel Rye Whiskey!

Rock Lobster Cocktail with a kick! This Spicy Rock Lobster Cocktail is made with George Dickel Rye Whiskey which adds a bit of spice with a nice smooth finish. Check out this easy recipe!

Before discovering the Whiskey5.com  website where you can discover your flavor match, I made it with Crown Royal, which is fantastic too. Today I’m following my flavor match and trying the George Dickel Rye Whiskey to make my favorite drink.

I first found the Rock Lobster drink about 15 years ago and it’s been my go-to ever since. Whether we’re relaxing at home or hanging out at the pub. It’s a foolproof, classy drink for any occasion!

I discovered that my flavor match is Spicy, so we picked up a bottle of George Dickel Rye Whiskey to try something a little different. A whiskey with peppery spices and hints of vanilla. I’m game, and I’m certainly glad I tried it — it’s my new whiskey of choice!

Today we’re just hanging out at home, making a couple of drinks and having fresh Maine lobsters and steamers. Uhhh, yum…and this cocktail pairs perfectly with lobster and clams if I do say so myself.
