If you’re a loyal VinePair reader, there’s at least a small chance that you’re not just a whiskey lover, but that you’re part of a whiskey-loving couple. If that’s the case, something you should definitely be doing is incorporating your shared love of whiskey into your date nights. Nothing says “I love you” like a good old shot of whiskey, right? We’ve come up with three fun (and easy!) date night ideas for those who love to share a sip of Scotch — or whichever spirit floats your boat. So sit back, grab a glass, and let the good times roll.
Have Your Own Private Whiskey Tasting
There’s nothing as romantic as learning something new together. A whiskey tasting for two will not only be super fun and edifying, but next time you’re out with your friends, you’ll be able to tell them a lot about whatever is on the menu. Grab a few bottles from the liquor store and bring them home for your date. Serve the whiskey in crystal tasting snifters. Have crackers and cucumbers on hand for palate-cleansing between whiskeys. And if you really want to up your game, grab a copy of this best-selling guide to Tasting Whiskey!
Have a Whiskey-Themed Netflix & Chill
Because what’s better than sipping whiskey on the couch in sweatpants? Grab your favorite bottle of booze, set up a fancy cheese board, and choose a whiskey-themed movie to get the party started. “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” “Whisky,” and “Whiskey Business” are just a few to choose from. And if you decide to go for multiple movies, be sure to have enough whiskey on hand to pair with them!
Age Your Own Whiskey
Aging your own whiskey has never been easier — and no, it doesn’t require purchasing a massive barrel for your not-so-massive apartment. Simply grab one of these sets and get started. Disclaimer: Results are not instant — we recommend keeping a bottle on hand for immediate consumption after.
