This Christmas, the tree isn't the only thing getting lit! Our Christmas Old Fashioned is sure to help light up your holiday, too. Made with cranberries, our award-winning rye whiskey, and aromatic bitters, this delicious libation will get you through all those awkward moments with family.
So here in North Carolina, Winter decided to rear her ugly head a little earlier than usual and needless to say, we're freezing our asses off already. And when you're cold in the South, it's an absolute necessity to put on a liquor coat. But we wanted to kick things up a notch, so we came up with a cocktail to help start that fire and get your blood moving a little faster. This cocktail is called the Fire Starter and with a kick of hot sauce and some Carolina bourbon, it ought to do just that!
It's finally beginning to feel like Fall here in the Carolinas. And in our neck of the woods, Fall and apples go hand in hand. So we decided to up the ante and throw apple butter AND whiskey into the mix. "Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!" What? You were thinking it too! This drink is easy to make and tastes so good, it could make you slap your mama. (Word to the wise: maybe don't slap your mama and just make another cocktail instead)
When International Coffee Day and Boozeday Tuesday fall on the same day, there's only one option: Spiked Maple Coffee. Not only is this our simplest recipe yet. It's also perfect for the coming colder weather.
Add a shot (or two) of Boundary Street Maple to your favorite cup of coffee. Then add the rest of your favorite additions or leave it black. Trust us, you won't regret it.
This cocktail is the perfect sipper for that September in the South weather. It's refreshing and delightful with fresh grapefruit juice, homemade mint simple syrup and the South's favorite spirit, whiskey.
Mint Simple Syrup: 1 cup packed fresh mint leaves 1 cup sugar 1 cup water
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir over heat until all sugar is dissolved. Strain mint out. Keep in fridge for two weeks in airtight container.
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.
