Spiced Bourbon & Beer Maple Martini

A Drunken Pear

Now I’m not one to typically pick up a pear and chomp, but when they are sliced in salads or better yet in a cocktail, I’m more than willing to participate in their consumption.  Pears have no cholesterol, sodium or saturated fat.  In addition, they are high in fiber, Vitamin C and potassium.   So […]

A Muddled “New” Old-Fashioned

 Here’s an upgrade to the old-fashioned classic cocktail, with thanks to Bill Heck’s recipe (Bon Appetit). I substituted granulated sugar for the cubes… turned out equally as tasty. SIZE: makes 1 INGREDIENTS:  2 sugar cubes (or 1 1/2-2 teaspoons granulated sugar) 4 dashes of Angostura bitters 1 lemon wheel 1 lime wheel 1 orange wheel 1 […]

Not Your Grandma’s Manhattan

Bourbon Slush

Superlicious slushy sipper of the summer. Can’t let a summer slip by without a batch of these. Make sure to allow a full 24 hours of proper freezing time until ready to serve. This one is a definite crowd pleaser and fantastically refreshing.

Dr. Bourbon’s Milk Shake

More of a dessert than a happy hour treat.  Creamy vanilla ice cream, bourbon, chocolate chips and pecans… Live a little.  You can work it off at the gym in the morning.  Life’s too short!
