FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Wood Totem cocktail stirred and not shaken?

The Wood Totem cocktail is stirred instead of shaken to preserve the clarity and texture of the drink. Stirring gently combines the Absinthe, Jagermeister, and Whiskey without introducing too much air, thus resulting in a smoother and more visually appealing cocktail.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

Can I use a different type of whiskey in the Wood Totem cocktail?

Yes, while the original recipe may specify a particular type of whiskey, you can use different types depending on your preference or what you have available. Each type of whiskey (e.g., Bourbon, Scotch, Rye) will introduce unique flavors to the cocktail, potentially creating a new variation for you to enjoy.
