As we continue our 2017 trend predictions, we spoke with a renowned whiskey brand, Reilly's Whiskey, and according to them "whiskey will continue to grow in 2017, especially the Irish and Canadian categories." Another interesting trend that they mentioned is that, "In the age of social media, cocktails are becoming more and more visual."

Here's a beautiful whiskey cocktail to highlight this trend:

The Spicy Ginger

2.0 oz. Reilly's Ginger Whiskey
3.0 oz. fresh lemon juice
0.25 oz agave nectar
jalapeño slice
whole red chili pepper

In a shaker, combine the first three ingredients and ice. Shake. Pour into an old-fashioned glass. Squeeze a slice of jalapeno and garnish with a chili pepper.
