    A heads up since some of you were caught unaware and not prepared to celebrate TOMORROW (JUNE 14).

    Try this version of an Old Fashioned

    In an Old Fashioned glass, muddle one Luxardo cherry, orange wedge and dashes of Cherry Vanilla and Blackstrap bitters

    2 oz favorite whiskey or bourbon
    1 oz. Heering Cherry
    Stir
    Ice to bring everything to 2/3 or 3/4 of the glass
    Top off with seltzer water and stir lightly
    Add another splash of bourbon/whiskey to kick start the first few sips
    Garnish with a couple more skewered Luxardo cherries

    Thank me later

    I'm confused, I thought you said national bourbon day?

    Don't include s*** from that horrible Orange state that likes to sing about being on a hill.

    Bourbon is whiskey of course. And as much as they like to describe their horse piss as Sour Mash, it qualifies for all the requirements of bourbon.

    My brother and sister graduated from Bourbon County, Ky (where bourbon was "invented")..........I graduated from Harrison County, which is just Northwest of Bourbon County.

    Blech on the muddling.

    Take a piece of orange peel about an inch by a quarter inch, place a flame to it to draw out the juices and rub it on the rim of the glass. Thank me later....

    My favorite cocktail:

    Three fingers of bourbon (most often Woodford Reserve)
    Two ice cubes
    One more finger of bourbon

    Boom it's done.

    Boss sent me home with a couple shots of Pappy. I can't make myself spend more than say a Knob Creek, Basil Hayden or Booker's.

    I used to drink it neat until I got to meet Fred Noe and he told me ice was ok. I figure if he has no problem with ice who am I to question that. RollLaugh

    Since Bull started this fine thread, I'll offer an Oaktown secret cocktail recipe.

    Try this, with any good Bourbon (I usually mix it 60/40 with Bulleit Rye). Over ice in a tall glass, squeeze a whole Meyer Lemon, add a dash of bitters, and - this is key - mix in a small amount of Cayenne Pepper. Trust me. Winking

    Somebody who knows what they are doing will evaluate a bourbon neat, with ice, with a little water and decide how that particular bourbon performs best. Even to the level of what you do with the first pour, 2nd pour, etc. Impressive.

    Haha...well, I would have probably had a beer or two after basketball. A bourbon will do just fine, though.

    My personal go to for an every day bourbon. The price point is great. There are many bourbons out there finer, but at $23, I can't find anything close to that which I enjoy as much.
