The virtues of bourbon hardly need extolling--they're self-evident. Mix up a Manhattan or an Old-Fashioned, adjust your ascot, and rest assured that you're partaking in a tradition men have enjoyed for generations.
An interesting, delicate twist on a vanilla shake.
It doesn’t get much better than perfect. This one calls for both sweet and dry vermouth. Shake or stir.
This one takes the manhattan as a base, swapping in anisette for the bitters.
This cocktail is no day at the beach. It’s an equal-parts manhattan without the bitters.
Like a manhattan only with lots of dry vermouth. This is definitely a solid, mansize cocktail, with the name of a little old lady.
Take a couple courses at Brown University. It's easy. This cocktail's like a manhattan only with lots of dry vermouth and some orange bitters.
In winter, this cocktail is the cure for whatever ails you.
This recipe is not a joke. Er, not entirely. Knock back the whiskey, or dump it in the beer.
This drink is an institution. It's the taste of the American South.
One of the originals. A simple, satisfy cocktail that loves rye whiskey.
Usually I like my Old Fashioneds plain, without the fruit, except for a wide slice of twisted lemon peel. But sometimes, like when I'm running low on Vitamin C, the whiskey-soaked bits of muddled orange are a welcome diversion.
You may know John’s cousin, Tom. This one uses whiskey instead of gin.
It’s a whiskey negroni, really. I prefer rye to bourbon, but it’s good either way. I also prefer a little more whiskey than an even split across the board. If I go with bourbon, I cut back to ¾ ounce on the sweet vermouth.
It’s just whiskey and hard cider, and it tastes like autumn over ice.
There are a couple versions of this cocktail floating around. This is the whiskey version of the Prince of Wales. Created in the later 1880s, it was named after Queen Victoria’s son, Edward.
I pulled back on the juice here -- too much juice and you bury the rye. But if you prefer, increase the orange and lemon juices by ¼ of an ounce or so each. A cocktail from the late 19th century, it's named after the 8th ward in Boston.
There's nothing like a good Manhattan. Really, more men should be drinking them these days. Have they forgotten about bourbon?!
This drink is a twist on the classic "Fuzzy Navel." A refreshing drink, blooming with mouth watering flavor. Perfect for enjoying life outside under a magnolia tree enjoying the warm Southern summer breezes.
Four Roses Delight is the perfect mix of sweet and sour with a splash of fruity flavor. Savor every sip of this superb drink that includes smooth Four Roses Bourbon, along with pleasing citrus orange juice, a slight bite of Peach Schnapps and the mellow goodness of Orange Curacao, topped with bright and bold Grenadine.
This is a perfect Southern summer sippin’ cocktail. Rhubarb and apricot compliment the flavor of the 4 Roses(R) bourbon.
