A nutty Kentuckian isn’t hard to find and you know who you are, but today I’m talking about a sweet nightcap.
The Kentucky Derby, a national holiday, occurs on the first Saturday each May, The Mint Julep is it’s signature drink.. Schools, Many institutions are closed for Derby Day as they should be. Amen.
The Star Hill Farm Date ‘N Honey Cocktail celebrates my love affair with Maker’s Mark and bourbon. Garnish with a fresh blackberry for a perfect happy hour!
Nothing pairs with bourbon like orange and chocolate. Infusing those flavors into a manhattan makes a transcendent cocktail.
As cocktails go, the Vieux Carre’ is a relative youngster compared to many of the classics. Pronounced voo-ka-RAE, the name literally translates as “old square”, which we know today as the French Quarter.
The Manhattan is the perfect cocktail because it has endless subtle variations and yet remains true to it’s traditional roots.
The origin of the Old Fashioned lies somewhere in the murky past, between 1860 and 1880. Some give credit to the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky.
