It’s time to pour my go-to simple cocktail: the Whiskey Soda. Okay, it isn't the most festive cocktail in the world. But it doesn’t require any measuring, and, really, you don’t even need a recipe. Just mix whiskey and club soda over ice, and you have a boozy, bubbly drink in less than 30 seconds. It’s a great way to drink whiskey without drinking straight whiskey.
