Bourbon

A Note From Colleen Jeffers

Today, bourbon — the corn-based, barrel-aged spirit that accounts for the vast majority of whiskey made in the US — isn't just a drink, but a part of our culture. From the settlers who first set up stills in 18th century Kentucky, to the pioneers who carried it west after the Civil War, to the pre-Prohibition bartenders who innovated the mixed drink [the Old-Fashioned, Manhattan and Mint Julep all call for bourbon], to the modern mixologists who revived those classics in our time, it's hard to image cocktail history (or the cocktail, full stop) without bourbon. Endlessly versatile — sip it on the rocks, mix it into cocktails, or even into food — and endlessly complex, bourbon deserves its place as one of the most respected and widely used ingredients in the world. My favorite bourbon recipes stay true to the made-in-America honesty of the spirit by drawing inspiration from seasonal flavors. Find some of the best ones right here!

Dog Days Old Fashioned

"Smoke gets in your Eyes". I'm a Scotch Drinker...don't get me wrong I love a nice solid bourbon but there is a sweet and sometimes salty smokiness I LOVE that I just find more often in Scotch. So I used bourbon @basilhaydens to be exact?, thanks to my trusty fellow bourbon drinker @joythebaker suggestion. I attempted to recreate the nose of scotch while ramping this up with lemon and mulling spice ice cubes to bring it a little summer flare... This was the cocktail that I made for @frontiercoop that I came back to again and again. It's spicy and refreshing with the addition of Crystallized Ginger simple syrup, sugar cane, smoked salt and Lime. So my friends here is my final summer cocktail for you. It's been so much fun developing and shooting these. If you make one please tag me and let me know! Cheers...may your summer be festive!

Date Infused Bourbon Old Fashioned

I was recently asked what I thought made for a good Valentine’s Day cocktail. I had to think really hard on this one. For me it has to be sweet but with a lot of spirit. That inspired me to create a DATE OLD FASHIONED. Made with bourbon infused with chopped dates. Garnished with bourbon soaked dates.

Bianco Boulevardier

Y'all I bought a torch and I am having so much fun with this thing! Especially with smoky garnishes! One of my favorite cocktails is the Boulevardier (because I am a bourbon lover) so I did a twist on this classic by adding bianco vermouth in place of red vermouth. I am back to my obsession with bianco vermouth and this cocktail is soooo good with this substitution.
