A Spelling Lesson And A Recipe

I try to be correct on my spelling of whisky (Scotch, Canadian, Japanese) versus whiskey (Irish, American), but I just realized I've probably been messing up the plural form for years. 

I always write "whiskies" as the plural of either word or when I talk about a combination of whisky and whiskey, but it turns out I should use "whiskeys" as the plural of "whiskey" and "whiskies" as the plural of "whisky." Ugh, embarrassing. 

Anyway, I lay out those rules in my latest blog post for FineCooking.com. 

The post also features a super simple Irish whiskey recipe from Phil Mauro of the bar Rye. It contains just whiskey, honey, grapefruit, and bitters.
