The Bootlegger Joe is smooth, slightly sweet with a touch of coffee and a splash of orange. It's a great after dinner or anytime sipper. Even if whiskey isn't your thing, this drink could have you changing your mind.
You can use bourbon or rye whiskey for this cocktail depending on your desired flavor. Bourbon will be a little bit more mild and allow the coffee liqueur and orange liqueur to do more talking, while Rye Whiskey is a little bit more spice forward being the foremost ingredient of this cocktail.
This past Saturday, we attended the North Carolina Wine Festival in Raleigh. One of our featured cocktails was the Apple Cider Whiskey Mule and it was a huge hit, so we wanted to share the recipe with all of you. This cocktail is so versatile that it's perfect for any of your upcoming holiday parties. You can choose your whiskey and it can be served hot or cold.
When you think of North Carolina in the summertime, blackberries, lemonade and front porch sitting don't stray too far from the mind. So in the spirit of the Carolinas, adding a little bit of whiskey to that summertime feeling is right up our alley. For this cocktail, we wanted to showcase Boundary Street Rye Whiskey's delectable flavors. It is spice-forward with underlying subtleties of butterscotch, vanilla and herbal flavors allowing it to complement, contrast and enhance a myriad of flavors, especially lemon, blackberries and rosemary.
