If you’re a big fan of whiskeys and burgers, and looking for a great Happy Hour with great deals, look no further than The Whiskey.
With an expansive whiskey, bourbon, and Scotch list (way too many to count!) and other mixed drinks, their happy hour from 4 to 7 PM Monday thru Friday is a great way to try out different whiskeys and delicious appetizers and burgers.
The happy hour food ranges from $4.25 to $10 with specials on drinks as well!
For drinks, I couldn’t turn down the “Whiskey” Old Fashioned (Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, orange bitters, rhubarb bitters, fresh orange, Traverse City Black Cherry, rock candy stir).
But, if you’re wanting something on the sweeter side The Elderberry (vodka, essence of elderflower, strawberries, blackberries, cranberry juice, sparkling wine) is a good choice!
Start off with the Cheese Curds (White Cheddar cheese curds, tempura battered and fried), Jalapeño Bombs (4 whole jalapeños, stuffed with bacon pimento cheese, tempura fried), or my personal favorite, the Bangin’ Shrimp (fried, drizzled with sweet and spicy sriracha aioli). The Bangin’ Shrimp are lightly fried and the aioli is the perfect balance of spicy with a touch of sweetness.
Next, go for the Fried Pickles or Fried Mushrooms. We chose the Fried Mushrooms, and dipped in the side of ranch, they were my favorite part of the meal!
If you’re still hungry, definitely get one of the two burgers (or both if you want!) they offer during Happy Hour. There’s the Small Batch Whiskey Burger (5oz. burger patty, smoked Gouda, bourbon bacon, whiskey caramelized onions, greens, tomato, and dill aioli) we ordered, and the Small Batch Lassahn Burger (5oz. burger patty, cheddar cheese, bourbon bacon, greens and tomato).
With the burger, you can choose the Parmesan Truffle Fries or order the S & S Potatoes (Sweet potato waffle fries, tossed in house spices, drizzled with a honey glaze) which are also on the happy hour menu.
