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"...
This past weekend, we participated in The Big Sip Festival in Winston-Salem, NC. Our cocktail was such a hit we had no choice but to make it this week's Boozeday Tuesday (nor are we disappointed that this is the cocktail of the week). All you need is iced tea, your favorite Boundary Street Whiskey and some peach simple syrup and you'll be enjoying this cocktail all year long.

This cocktail is sure to keep you feeling happy-go-lucky no matter what time of year. Rye whiskey, maraschino cherry liqueur, and two varieties of bitters come together for a libation sure to excite your taste buds. With only four ingredients, this cocktail is not only easy to make, it's also nice on the budget. You can even make a large batch of it to share with friends!
The Sazerac is thought to be one of the (if not the) first American cocktails with origins in pre-Civil War New Orleans. The defining feature of this cocktail is its preparation method, which commonly involves two chilled rocks glasses. The first glass is swirled with a wash of absinthe, while the second is used to combine the remaining ingredients (rye whiskey, bitters, and sugar) over ice.
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.
