Proper 12 whiskey recipes: Punchy mixed drinks for your UFC 246 fight night party

Ahead of UFC 246, we were sent numerous recipes for fancy artisanal cocktails based on Conor McGregor’s Proper Number Twelve Whiskey. And since we had no mixologists on staff, we had the person with the heftiest liver and a camera, Matt Ryan, try his hand at making some of these drinks that people who have much cooler haircuts and tattoos have concocted.

Want to make one of the cocktails Matt made in this video, but like a person and not some sort of savage with a meat tenderizer? Look below!


Ours is red because Matt can’t follow simple instructions.

1 bottle of Proper No. Twelve Whiskey
1 12oz can of lemonade
1 cup fresh lemon juice
250 ml red wine
3 lemons, sliced into wheels, for garnish
Directions: In a large punch bowl, Add Proper Twelve Whiskey, Lemonade and Fresh Lemon Juice. Refrigerate overnight. Add ice and stir. Top with red wine and lemon slices for garnish.
