Here are three ideas for alternative ways to enjoy your favorite bourbon.

1) Cranberry Old Fashioned Cocktail: Bring out this ‘old fashioned’ favorite at your next family barbecue! Be sure to recruit a fellow barkeep for assistance as this cocktail is best served immediately once mixed.

2) Derby Julep: Just because its namesake is the fastest two minutes in sports does not mean this drink should be short-lived. Enjoy this delicious cocktail all year long!

3) Chucktown Sunrise: Bourbon and ginger ale combined to make this colorful drink. Simple and classic!
