Best Whiskey Selection

Did you know that in the 1970s whiskey was considered an old person’s drink? At the time trendy young people were knocking back vodka instead. Fifty years later tastes have flipped, and the cool kids are now sipping whiskey again. If you’d like to join them, swing in to The Red Mixer on the south side for a sampling of their bottle selection and some delicious house cocktails. Helix Wine, Craft Bar & Cafe in River Prairie also boasts an impressive array of bourbons. If you’d like a big juicy steak to accompany your dram, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse would love to serve you both. —Eric Rasmussen
