Have you tried the Pickleback yet? It's a simple shot recipe of Jameson and pickle juice and it has many fans. While it may not be for everyone (you really have to like the taste of pickles), it is very interesting and a new way to take a shot of a great whiskey. The Pickleback is a two shot drink, thought to have originated in hipster bars in Brooklyn, but no one knows the exact origins. What is known is that the Pickleback has become one of the hottest drinks in the country.
Canadian Club is known for producing some very smooth blended whiskies. They are some of the best cocktail mixers you will find among the Canadian whisky brands available. This recipe calls for their Classic 12, the flagship of the brand that is made in small batches and has a robust barley taste. It is aged for 12 years in charred oak barrels that once housed bourbon. It brings a great amount of character to this cocktail and plays perfectly against the sweetness of the schnapps.
Though the recipe calls for bourbon, other styles of whiskey will work just fine in the Whiskey Smash. If you prefer a robust rye or a smooth Canadian, feel free to pour one of those instead. It's all a matter of personal preference. The drink will take on a different character with each whiskey you pour. For instance, if you want a sweeter smash, you might try Makers Mark. If you'd prefer something a bit spicier, Old Forester Signature should work quite nicely.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
