This bourbon and ginger ale cocktail is super simple and a fun twist to your usual straight-up bourbon. If you’re feeling spicy you can add in ginger beer instead of ginger ale. Don’t forget to add in the bourbon barrel-aged bitters for an extra dash of flavor!
It wasn’t until a while ago that I realized bourbon rocked my boozy world.
I have always been somewhat of a gin and often turned my nose at the thought of drinking anything brown.
I blame this on the fact that the only bourbon I ever had was the cheap stuff my dad would put in a hot toddy when I was sick.
A hot toddy is almost better than NyQuil.
It’s a natural way of getting your body back into shape.
So, fast forward to a couple of years ago and I went on a tour of Tuthilltown Spirits.
They were nice enough to give me a bottle of baby bourbon and I have been milking it ever since.
Once I realize how delicious something can be I do the exact opposite of most people.
Instead of having it whenever I want I hoard it.
I only use it for special occasions or for when I absolutely must have bourbon.
Although this drink is simple the flavors are elevated by the use of Fee Brothers whiskey barrel aged bitters.
These things are amazing. I know I said this yesterday, but seriously folks.
Bitters are amazing and need to become a part of your everyday bar setup.
Depending on your love of ginger flavor you can make this drink with ginger ale or ginger beer.
I especially love it when mixed with a nice spicy ginger beer.
