You may want to introduce your non-whisky drinking friends to the “water of life” during the holidays, but sometimes it takes a little something extra to get them to try it. We’ll take a look at whisky-based cocktails in this episode with veteran mixologist Bobby Gleason and the winner of Whisky Live Toronto’s bar chefs competition, Shona Jensen. In the news, 10,000 bottles of Bowmore have been stolen in England, Dewar’s starts a year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal, and the Christie’s auction of rare whiskies and spirits in New York brings in more than $300,000.
