A heads up since some of you were caught unaware and not prepared to celebrate TOMORROW (JUNE 14).
*** Thread of the Day *** Nominee
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
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
- Me and everyone else from the great state of Kentucky
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.
Well I was drinking yuengling. But I guess I have to switch over now.
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.
As a Kentucky Colonel myself, I say thank you very much.
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....
Christ Harris, let's not start a holy war.
That's how I lost my eyebrows.
My favorite cocktail:
Three fingers of bourbon (most often Woodford Reserve)
Two ice cubes
One more finger of bourbon
Boom it's done.
One of the few things the South does well.
Oops... I thought that was yesterday, and the day before that for that matter..
Guess I'll just drink it again today since its official.
Good mix, except for the ice .
My version of an Old Fashioned
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.
I always do ice as well.
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.
Looks like I know what I'm doing tonight.
Yeah this significantly changed my evening plans.
All good pours that are on my bar.
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.
All I see is boobs.
