I have found a few cocktails with a whiskey base that could be great for a celebratory occasion. These cocktails are variations of the classic Old Fashioned, and they have been highly rated by other users who enjoy whiskey drinks. Each has its unique twist, so you can choose based on the specific preferences of the whiskey drinker.
