Whiskey weekenders

Stone Cold Fizz/Penicillin, deVere’s Irish Pub

The Stone Cold Fizz ($9) at deVere’s Irish Pub in Midtown is bursting with flavor and happy bubbles. The refreshing drink is made with Irish whiskey, apricot, lemon, muddled mint and seltzer water. The balance of whiskey against its sweeter flavor notes of citrus and stone fruit is expertly shaken, poured over ice and served with an eco-friendly paper straw. Another whiskey cocktail that’s a bit stronger than the Fizz is called Penicillin ($10), which is made with smoky scotch, ginger, honey, lemon and more scotch. Both cocktails make a perfect cheers to the weekend, or even some midweek relief. 1521 L St., deverespub.com.
