Whisky or rather Whiskey mixed drinks is more of an American invention of Prohibition, that’s the usual idea, but cocktails or mixed whisky drinks are not entirely uncommon in United Kingdom.

Whisky and specially Scotch, adds warmth, honey notes and a smoky complexity to cocktails, and often whisky or Scotch is used to replace Bourbon or Rye, to add that depth of flavour to usual American Whiskey cocktails.
