Attention, world: Whiskey is not just a dude drink. Like guys, girls can drink whiskey straight up playing poker. Girls can drink whiskey in a hotel bar waiting for a blind date. Girls can also drink de-freaking-licious whiskey mixed drinks while they’re pre-gaming a night downtown to the hottest new club. So now that we have cleared up that little myth, let us bring to your attention that today, Saturday, May 21, 2016, is World Whiskey Day!

We’ve compiled a list of our top 5 favorite recipes from Whiskey Girl. So pick one (or all five!), gather together your girlfriends, and show the guys in your life how real women drink whiskey.
