There’s nothing like that warm whiskey feelin’ to help adjust to cooler nights. So, to ready yourself for fall, here are a few of our favorite bourbon cocktail recipes. They’re classic, easy to make, and delicious to boot!
– The Stone Fence incorporates freshly pressed apple cider…live dangerously (like we do) and try a Tripping Hazard as well. Our own ‘special’ recipe, a Tripping Hazard uses Downeast Hard Cider instead of regular ‘ole apple cider. It’s the Dark N’ Stumbly of the fall!
– A Whiskey Fizz is good for your digestion, and gets you tipsy at the same time.
– Need that sophisticated look? Make a Manhattan — be sure to use Luxardo maraschino cherries — they’re possibly the best maraschino cherries out there.
To shop the recommended bourbons & ingredients, swing by Bottles, and look for our Bourbon Special display. And if you’d like to learn more about our featured whiskeys this fall, you can read our latest post here to learn even more.
