Cola and Whiskey
We couldn’t write this list without mentioning one of the most popular whiskey mixers — Cola. Although you shouldn’t be using coke with a nice single malt Scotch whiskey, it can be a nice accompaniment to bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey, Irish whiskey, or Canadian whiskey.

Fill a short glass with ice
Pour in 60 ml of whiskey
Add 240 ml (1 cup) of Coca Cola
Stir and enjoy
Tea and Whiskey
Tea is a surprisingly good partner for whiskey because it adds a freshness and herbal flavor to your drink. It can also be enjoyed cold or warm.
Below is a basic recipe for tea and whiskey, but you can also create some interesting tea and whiskey cocktails, which are detailed on this page.

Coffee and Whiskey (Irish Coffee)
Irish Whiskey works well as a nightcap or for whenever you are forced to get up at an ungodly hour. It combines the stimulating impact of coffee with the many flavors of whiskey and delicious full cream.

Empty the hot water from the glass and add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar
Add one cup of freshly brewed coffee and stir
Once the sugar has melted, add 45 ml of Irish whiskey and stir again
