Frísco is delicious on its own, for sure, though really shines as a base for cocktails. Just remember, the 45% ABV and incredible smoothness makes for a downright dangerous combination. Usually, we suggest people try Frísco neat or with ice, then with a splash of soda, and finally in a delicious cocktail. This walk takes you through the different levels of complexity of the spirit and let’s you really appreciate how beautiful it is. Here are a few easy to make cocktail suggestions for yourself and friends. Enjoy!
