Rock n Rolla
This drink is easy to make since it uses easily accessible ingredients. You’ll need an overproof bourbon like Colonel EH Taylor Barrelproof Bourbon or Booker’s. Add the bourbon, apple juice, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters to a shaker and shake the ingredients well.
The taste will rock you like the name. If you’re caught in flames while trying to light the drink on fire, stop, drop, and roll.
If you’re missing Aspen or the Alps, this is the cocktail to concoct. Alpine Manhattan features an ounce and a half of your favorite bourbon and an ounce of pine syrup. You can also add Angostura bitters.
This what the mob bosses would drink before putting their enemies to sleep with the fishes. It’s the easiest bourbon cocktail to make on this roster. Mix the bourbon with club soda and Angostura bitters according to taste. If it misses the sweetness, you can add some sugar. Garnish the drink with an orange wheel or a maraschino cherry. Keep the cocktail in reach if you haven’t paid the protection money.
Blushing Betty is perfect for the introverted girls’ night out at your place that you’ve been planning for weeks. You’ll need to make some simple syrup before creating this Vitamin-C rich cocktail. Mix equal parts of sugar and water with each other and heat till it becomes syrup. Keep the syrup sealed in the fridge.
Shake grapefruit juice, bourbon, and the simple syrup in a shaker. Drink it on the rocks like Mel Gibson.
