There are so many delicious drinks that could be used to mirror the equally delicious performances this year. While my personal pick for best picture would be Argo, I just can't get over Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln. I have no idea what Lincoln was really like but from now on he will indelibly be imprinted in my mind as Daniel Day Lewis. But as a cocktail muse, there was just one problem: Lincoln didn't drink. Yet I was determined to find the perfect sip for this performance so worthy of a toast. After a few shakes I found the white whiskey margarita to be the perfect Oscar party drink, a nod to Lincoln's birthplace of Kentucky. White whiskey is not straight up moonshine, otherwise known as white dog. Those are spirits right off the still that never see a barrel and can burn the bejesus out of your mouth, throat, stomach...You get the idea. This cocktail highlights Jacob's Ghost White Whiskey, which is a true whiskey aged for at least one year in un-charred white oak barrels. It smells like sweet corn in the glass but has a delightfully playful briny note. I first started sipping it with a simple squeeze of fresh lime juice, but this white whiskey works swell in all sorts of cocktails including a whiskey sour, a Bloody Mary and this Lincoln Margarita. Below you'll find a recipe that makes two drinks, one to share with your own best supporting actor. While the man himself was reportedly a teetotaler, it doesn't mean Lincoln isn't worthy of a toast. So bust out some fancy hors d'oeuvres and pour up the Lincoln Margarita as a perfect conversation starter tonight or on Sunday at your Oscar party. P.S. Today is also National Margarita Day, so here's to it!
