Summer 2020: Cocktails Made Simple

Summer 2020: Cocktails Made Simple

Many of us enjoy whisky cocktails during a night out, but when the bars aren't open, that's no reason to forego a world-class drink. The Summer 2020 issue of Whisky Advocate equips you with all the knowledge you need to mix up great whisky cocktails at home—even if you have to improvise. Missing an ingredient or lack a fancy tool? We'll help you find a workaround.

The issue also highlights two of the most exciting movements in whisky today: the newcomers to Scotland's distilling scene, carving out unique niches in a traditional industry, and America's single malt whiskey makers. Fresh faces and creative energy in both countries are pushing the limits of innovation and yielding delicious whisky as a result.

Elsewhere in the issue, explore Pittsburgh's vibrant whiskey scene, pair a slice of pepperoni with the perfect dram, discover the complexities of double-finishing, and celebrate the Olympics—even while postponed—with limited-edition Japanese whiskies. Plus, browse new reviews of over 130 bourbons, scotches, and more.
