Recipe Posted on Friday, Sep. 21, 2018

In 2007, the U.S. Senate declared September “Bourbon Heritage Month”. The bill, passed by unanimous consent, reinforces the 1964 Act of Congress that declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit” by celebrating the family heritage, tradition, and deep-rooted legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to the United States.

This year, we’re celebrating our Bluegrass roots with an array of events and specials that honor Kentucky Bourbon. Just for the month of September, we’re serving up 7 specially crafted bourbon cocktails. If you can’t make it in, you can celebrate yourself with by making one of our favorite cocktails, the Kentucky Daisey, at home.

Kentucky Daisey
1.5 oz. Weller Bourbon
.75 oz. Giffard Pamplemousse
.75 oz. Ginger Syrup
4 drops Orange Flower Water
.5 oz. Lime Juice

This light and refreshing cocktail compliments the pronounced flavor of bourbon with notes of grapefruit, orange, ginger, and mint.
