Bourbon Drink Recipes
There are a gazillion other variations of this recipe circulating around, but we prefer Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh's since it is easy, delicious, and well balanced. The quality of the ingredients you use will determine how well this basic cocktail turns out. Although canned pineapple juice is good, fresh juice lifts it to a higher plane. Your dry vermouth should be only a few weeks old and quite fresh.
We adore the names Audrey Saunders, a New York bartender, chooses for her beverages. Even more, we enjoy drinking them. Naturally, this shooter tastes best shaken with ice, but you can also pack it in a flask and enjoy it when ice isn't available.
The 7&7, a much-maligned highball from the 1970s, that takes its names from Seagram's 7 Crown whisky and 7-Up soda, has more potential than we snobbish cocktail aficionados gave it credit for. It's an acceptable beverage when made with the specified components, especially when a fresh lemon or lime slice is added. It's light, refreshing, and straightforward. But when you substitute a spicy rye or a sweet bourbon for the mild 7 Crown and add a handcrafted lemon-lime soda or small-batch sparkling lemonade on top, something magical happens. It's a great starting point for experimentation and a wonderful method to introduce new drinkers to the opportunities presented by selecting other (and superior) ingredients.
The idea for this inventive take on the Twentieth Century cocktail came from mixologist Brian Miller. Miller substitutes bourbon and Lillet Rouge (a red wine apéritif) for the original's gin and Lillet Blanc (a white wine apéritif). The end result is a complex, slightly sour and sweet drink with a hint of chocolate flavor.
The Fallback is a nightcap with an autumnal tint that tastes and smells like spiced, roasted apples and plums. It was made by the late Sasha Petraske and serves as evidence of his mixology legacy's enduring genius.
The Paper Plane cocktail is a modern classic, first appearing on the cocktail scene in 2007. The drink was created by Sam Ross, a bartender at Milk & Honey in New York City, and it quickly gained popularity due to its unique flavor profile and eye-catching name.
The Paper Plane cocktail is made with equal parts Aperol, bourbon, Amaro Nonino, and lemon juice. Combining these ingredients creates a balanced, refreshing drink with notes of citrus, herbs, and bitters.
The origins of the Paper Plane cocktail are somewhat shrouded in mystery, with some speculating that it was named after the song "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. Others believe that the name refers to the drink's ingredients, which are meant to be balanced and evenly distributed, like the wings of a paper plane. Regardless of its origin, the Paper Plane cocktail has become a staple at bars and cocktail parties worldwide, showing no signs of slowing down in popularity.
