Grateful Cranberry Cocktail

This fall cranberry cocktail is perfect for Thanksgiving. It’s light enough that it won’t compete with a plate full of turkey and mashed potatoes. But the unique mixture of cranberry, honey, bourbon, green tea and ginger ale is full enough to satisfy the taste buds.

Deadly Nightshade

Name your poison! Named after a beautiful but deadly plant, this drink has a dark color that hints at something sinister.  But don’t worry, instead of using poisonous flowers or berries, we used black currant juice and black currant liqueur (also known as crème de cassis).

Black Maple Hill Bourbon Review

Black Maple Hill is a damn fine, 95-proof bourbon at a damn fine price. My friends and I call it “the one that smells like bananas,” but there’s more to it than its tropical nose.

It starts out mellow on the tongue with a bit of a sweet, fruity taste and quickly brings on a little heat to let you know that, yes, this is Kentucky bourbon you’re drinking. The result is a solid, complex … Read more

I’ll admit that I was hesitant about the idea of a flavored bourbon, as I am quite protective of the spirit and didn’t want it to get the cough-syrup treatment.

However, this bourbon was a pleasant surprise.

It smells like real cherries with a backdrop of oak. It does have a sweet flavor, but that is balanced by … Read more

The Regal Ransom Cocktail

post icon

In preparation for the Kentucky Derby, I’ve created a cocktail named after the top contender—Regal Ransom.

This drink accentuates some of the bourbon’s undertones. Mixing bourbon with a syrup of honey and pears brings out the spirit’s sweeter side. The tea and lemon balance the sweetness and compliment the oaky qualities of the bourbon. Overall, this cocktail lets the bourbon shine through while still giving you something light and refreshing.

Bourbon Lollipops

Bourbon on a stick, anyone?

The folks at Lollyphile in San Francisco “put some sweetness in the sour mash” to provide the world with bourbon lollipops.

The company also makes absinthe lollipops. (As well as maple bacon pops. Bacon is second only to booze, people.)
Buy 4 for $10 … or 36 for $52!

This is inspiring me to experiment with some boozy lollipop recipes myself.
