Feeling Thirsty?

If our last recipe post from The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book wasn’t enough of a teaser for ya, check below for some tasty treats! Whether you’re a fan of sweet or savory spirits, this book has something for everyone.


Kentucky Derby Pie

1½ ounces Kentucky bourbon (80–90 proof)
¾ ounce Nocello (walnut liqueur)
½ ounce Tuaca
¾ ounce Godiva chocolate liqueur
¾ ounce Baileys Irish Cream

Combine ingredients, shake over ice, and strain into a chilled glass. Sprinkle
cocoa powder on top.

Kentucky Sunshine

2 ounces Kentucky sourwood honey dissolved in 2 ounces hot water
2 ounces Kentucky bourbon (80–90 proof)
2 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces fresh orange juice
1 ounce medium dry sherry
1 ounce sparkling wine

Dissolve the honey in the hot water; otherwise it will not dissolve in the liquor.
To an ice-filled glass, add all ingredients except the sparkling wine; shake. Add
more ice if needed and the sparkling wine. Garnish with a drizzle of undiluted
sourwood honey, a sprinkle of nutmeg, and a lemon wheel on the rim. Serve
with a long straw.

Feel Better Kentucky Bourbon Toddy

2 ounces Kentucky bourbon of your choice
1 ounce brown sugar syrup or undiluted Kentucky sourwood honey
4 dashes Angostura bitters
1 ounce fresh orange juice
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice

Pour boiling water into a heat-proof mug, add all other ingredients, and stir
well. This is the perfect drink if you feel a cold coming on. If taken just before
bedtime, use a high-alcohol, barrel-proof bourbon. Sweet dreams!
