September is Bourbon Heritage Month. This month at HerKentucky, we've shown you some sweet treats made with bourbon, a delicious savory bourbon sauce, a fabulous historic tour, and even a great way to support bourbon sustainability efforts. But you know what we haven't discussed yet? Cocktails.
Everyone knows that the best way to enjoy Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is neat, with a couple of ice cubes to evenly dilute the flavor. But, sometimes you need to mix it up. Here is a list of some of the HerKentucky team's favorite bourbon cocktail recipes.
Liz's Skinny Manhattan
Liz came up with a way to enjoy her very favorite bourbon drink without packing in the extra calories. You can check out the recipe here.
The HerKentucky Pumpkin Spiced Manhattan
Liz has another take on her beloved Manhattan here. This time, she added the tastes of autumn!
Belle's Berry Cobbler Mint Julep
Glenda had this drink at Belle's Cocktail House in Lexington, and loved it so much that she asked for the recipe!
Maker's Mark Hot Toddy
This is my go-to recipe when I'm fighting off a cold, or when there's a chill in the air. We first ran the recipe for National Hot Toddy Day. But, this time of year, should they all be hot toddy days?
