It goes without saying that bacon makes everything better. So we decided to upgrade one of our favorite classic cocktails, the Manhattan, with a hint of bacon, and it did not disappoint!
Your classic Manhattan calls for whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. We upped the ante with a key ingredient, Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup. I know, I know, it sounds like a lot of work, but trust me, it's easier than you think. Plus, if you make enough, this simple syrup can add some fun to another classic cocktail, the Old Fashioned, but we'll save that for another day.
Pomegranate Juice + Craft Whiskey + Lemonade... What's there not to like about that?!
This cocktail is not only refreshing and tasty, it's delicious too! We made this for Beer, Bourbon and BBQ in Cary, NC last weekend and it was such a hit that we ran out halfway through the festival, so we knew we had to share it with all of you.
The best part? It goes with all three of our whiskeys!
The New York Sour is basically a classic whiskey sour with a red wine float.
I know what you're thinking. Red wine float? With whiskey and lemon juice? And maple syrup? No thank you. But I promise it just amplifies this already delicious cocktail. Let me break it down for you:
The New York sour is amazingly balanced with sweetness from the Maple Whiskey and maple syrup. The lemon juice adds tartness in contrast. The whiskey adds warmth while the red wine adds a depth of flavor that elevates the cocktail.
We have made this cocktail for a couple of different events here recently and it has been a huge hit, so we wanted to share it with all of you. Our Mixed Berry Lemonade is incredibly easy to make on a small scale or for your next backyard BBQ. You can also mix up the lemonade without the booze, so you and your guests can choose your own spirit to enjoy (plus, it's safe for the kiddos to enjoy this way too).
Whiskey sours are one of the best ways to enjoy your favorite whiskey. But the same old sour can get a bit boring. That's where Horball's Drinking Vinegars come in! This North Carolina company makes delicious shrubs, or drinking vinegars, in a variety of flavors that are perfect to spice up your favorite cocktails. We chose their Blueberry Lemon flavor for our whiskey sour and boy, was it the right choice. Don't believe us?! Just try one for yourself with this easy recipe:
The Raspberry Basil Smash is so good, even the dogs approve.
Fresh raspberries, basil leaves, a touch of lemon juice and your favorite Boundary Street whiskey combine together for an exceptionally refreshing cocktail (even in this NC heat wave of a lifetime). Feel free to swap out the...
So we're a day late, but not a drink short this week. And this one is delicious. We made this Lavender Whiskey Lemonade for Find Your Spirit Festival this past weekend in Asheville and it was such a hit, we just had to share it with everyone this week for Boozeday Tuesday.
Lavender is known for its relaxing properties and who doesn't love to relax on a porch with some lemonade on nice Carolina spring or summer day? Only a crazy person would say that doesn't sound appealing. So how do you get refreshed and relaxed with a Lavender Whiskey Lemonade?
Have you ever gotten tired of the same old cocktails? Or do you enjoy the thrill of experimenting with the contents of your liquor cabinet? For me, I would answer yes to both of those questions which lead me to the creation of "The Cherry in the Rye"...
It's finally Spring thyme! See what I did there? We keep hearing that Maple is a fall flavor, but this cocktail throws that opinion right into the trash. And who doesn't love a classically made whiskey sour? Only the crazies, that's who. So without further ado, here's how you make the Maple Thyme Sour...
Do you know what kind of cocktails are my favorite? Well, truthfully, I'll try almost anything, but cocktails that combine craft beer and bourbon are at the top of my list. But if you find a cocktail that doesn't just stop at beer and bourbon, but goes further with fresh fruit, herbs and raw sugar, you, my friend, have found yourself a winner. Thus, we give you the Black-beery Bourbon.
