All’s well with Oaksmith, Jim Beam

All’s well with Oaksmith, Jim Beam

The world of whisky is expanding, with blenders perfecting and innovating constantly. Likewise, the list of great cocktails continues to grow. On the occasion of World Whisky Day and World Cocktail Day, Beam Suntory India shares a few tried and true recipes that are essential to creating a well-rounded experience.

As a world leader in premium spirits, Beam Suntory’s portfolio of brands consists of world-renowned bourbons, Japanese whiskies, single malt Scotch, tequilas and Cognac crafted beautifully to bring out diverse, rich and unique flavours from different regions across the globe.

Whisky served with 1/3rd water is the perfect serve as it brings out the maximum flavour and a beautiful aroma. However, the versatility of whisky can be further explored. Using Beam Suntory’s Jim Beam and its first IMFL whiskey, Oaksmith, below is a perfect list for beginners and connoisseurs to explore everything that's possible with whisky.



Bebinca Flip

This drink marries the classic and much-loved Portuguese dessert, the Bebinca, to one of the oldest styles of cocktail families, the flip, to create a luscious drink, much like its Goan counterpart.


  • Oaksmith Gold 50 ml
  • Coconut cream 25 ml
  • Small egg 1
  • Jaggery syrup 25 ml
  • Vanilla essence 2 drops
  • Pinch of nutmeg powder

Method: Add all the ingredients, except the Oaksmith Gold and the nutmeg powder, to the shaker and shake it hard, without ice, to emulsify the ingredients and create a froth. This is known as a dry shake.

Now add ice, the measure of Oaksmith Gold and shake the drink once again. Fine strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a pinch of nutmeg powder.


Patrao’s Siesta

If you are ever walking down the quaint streets in the ‘Portuguese’ parts of Panjim, it’ll be hard to miss a Patrao, the local word for landlord or boss, perhaps grabbing an afternoon siesta. Some of Goa’s most endearing sights are made up of brightly coloured buildings with red roofs, reminiscent of Portuguese influences in its local architecture. The drink will have two distinct colours – yellow and red – to represent the colours of a typical Goan villa. 


  • Oaksmith Gold 50 ml
  • Goan port wine 10 ml
  • Passion fruit pulp 20 ml
  • Orange juice 30 ml
  • Ice


Shake all the ingredients except the port wine, together in a shaker full of ice and strain over one big piece of ice in an old fashioned glass. Now gently pour the port wine over the drink so that it floats, creating a red layer on top.



Claremont Club


  • Jim Beam 50 ml
  • Raspberry puree 2 bar spoons
  • Cinnamon syrup 10 ml
  • Sugar syrup 10 ml
  • Lime juice 25 ml
  • Egg white ½
  • Mint leaf

Method: Shake and strain all the ingredients. In a coupe of cocktail glass, garnish with a mint leaf, or fresh raspberries on a cocktail skewer.



The New York Sour


  • Jim Beam 50 ml
  • Red wine 20 ml
  • Orange juice 30 ml
  • Sugar syrup 20 ml
  • Lemon juice 20 ml


Method: Shake and strain all the ingredients. For a little more depth, float red wine on the drink on a rocks glass in the end.
