Whiskey!  Whiskey!  Whiskey!

Guess what I’m craving?  It starts with whis and ends with key.  Okay, so my riddle skills need work but I really have been craving a new whiskey cocktail to try.  And as happenstance should have it, in leafing through Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails I found a tasty sounding recipe I had marked a while back.  It’s a concotion of Scotch, lime juice and ginger beer.  Seems like a rather fitting transition cocktail as we pass through fall.  Some citrus flavors to remind us of summer and some whiskey to warm us up as winter comes.  Shall we get things started?
