Barrel out the door and into Whiskey Cake for the complete craft whiskey experience
There’s no card required to check out a pour from our library of over 250 hand-selected whiskeys, bourbons, ryes, and single-malt scotches at Whiskey Cake! Featuring an encyclopedic selection of local, domestic, and international whiskies from Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Japan, and beyond, you may as well get your atlas out while you sample the globe’s varied takes on that beautiful, amber, “water of life” aged in barrels and imparted with a wide array of tasting notes.
We also have a number of expertly-curated whiskey flights for when you’re in the mood to kick your shoes off, (figuratively, of course. Or maybe for real. That’s cool, too.) sit back, and enjoy a selection of whiskies carefully chosen by connoisseurs of the boozy arts.
You can also create your own lineup of whiskies from our extensive collection – a fun way to spend an evening comparing single-malts to Kentucky bourbons, or even a Japanese rice whiskey. If you order something really top-shelf (literally
), you might even see one of our barkeeps scale a ladder to retrieve your bottle of choice from our immense backbar – how’s that for a drink and a show? Naturally, our barkeeps are well-educated in the ways of whiskey (and the cocktail canon, too!) and will gladly help you pick out a quad that’ll give you that peaceful, easy feeling.
CRAFT COCKTAILS AND HAPPY HOURS: KEEPING YOUR SPIRITS HIGH AT WHISKEY CAKE
OK, so maybe a nice sipping whiskey neat or on the rocks isn’t your thing. Or maybe it is, but you’re just in the mood for a handmade, artisanal, one-of-a-kind cocktail or rare elixir made by one of our accomplished bartenders. Maybe you need a pick-me-up like the Hustle & Grind, made with coffee-infused Buffalo Trace bourbon, espresso liqueur and other coffee fixings like cream and salted caramel syrup. Perhaps you’re feeling a bit old-fashioned (ahem
) with a bit of a twist; in that event, ask for our Smoked Old Fashioned, a take on the classic bourbon cocktail infused with a rotating selection of wood chips for a finely-fumed concoction.
See, the thing is, just as with our kitchen’s farm-to-fork philosophy, we’re all about the garden-to-glass outlook on cocktails. Fresh ingredients make for singular syrups and infusions like the peach-thyme simple syrup in our Ryes N Shine whiskey cocktail, or the locally-sourced honey in the Winchester 85 & the Wabbit Smash – featuring in-house, freshly-made carrot juice. A Bee Sting is always a great way to get your attention – ours features a slightly dry and fruity Monte Alban Tequila with freshly-squeezed grapefruit, agave, lime, finished with a mellow kick of jalapeño.
Our juicer’s always fired up and ready to go for when you’re in need of a bit of a recharge: freshly-juiced mocktails like the Hulk with its enlivening cucumber-basil base or the Beet Le Juice featuring a certain assistant to the regional manager’s favorite red root vegetable along with green apples, yuzu juice and local honey will leave you feeling refreshed and replenished when you’re in need of a little R&R.
INDULGE A LITTLE AT OUR MONTHLY WHISKEY PAIRING DINNERS
We’re known for our innovative, local, and chef-driven food here at Whiskey Cake. Naturally, because we’ve got a top-flight whiskey bar and strong relationships with local and national whiskey producers, we tie the two together to offer you unique whiskey pairing dinner experiences each month. We’ve partnered with craft whiskey distillers like High West, Whistle Pig, and Garrison Brothers in the past to bring you thoughtful and themed dinners where oaky meets umami. These dinners feature off-menu fare that you’ll only be able to catch once, like the Texas Quail with Cowboy Caviar & the Venison Ragù from our July dinner this year, or the Tea-Brined Duck Breast with Crispy Skin & Fried Homestead Mills Cornbread Stuffing from September’s dinner. Paired with neat pours and often with exclusive cocktails, these curated selections are designed to whet your appetite and complement your drink, while their very distillers are on-hand to guide you through the process of nosing and tasting exceptional whiskey created by their own hand. They’re highly educational, and yet way more fun than a school lunch. Just
a smidge, I’d say.
