Fall is in the…glass

Fall is here and there is no better time to get creative with your bourbon. Nothing will warm you up better on a crisp autumn day like the four offerings I’ve listed below. Apple, maple syrup and honey are the prominent seasonal flavors in these drinks. Try one out and enjoy!


Black Walnut Old Fashioned

  •      2 oz. bourbon (High Rye is preferable – Bulleit)
  •      1/2 oz. walnut liqueur
  •      3 dashes Angostura bitters
  •      Orange peel twist


hot pants

Hot Pants

  •      8 oz. apple cider
  •      3/4 oz lemon juice
  •      2 oz. maple bourbon (Knob Creek Smoked maple bourbon)
  •      1/4 oz. amaro nonino
  •      3/4 oz. salted caramel sauce
  •      dash of nutmeg
  •      cinnamon stick



Apple Bottom

  •      2 oz. bourbon (Jim Beam)
  •      3/4 oz. maple syrup
  •      3/4 oz. lemon juice
  •      Gala apples


brown derby

Brown Derby

  •      1.5 oz. bourbon (Woodford Reserve)
  •      1 oz. grapefruit juice
  •      1.2 oz. honey syrup
  •      grapefruit peel twist


If none of these offerings meet your fancy or sound just too time consuming to make, then just do what I do. Pour a glass of your favorite bourbon and add a few drops of your preferred cinnamon whiskey (Jim Beam Kentucky Fire or Fireball) or maybe even a few ounces of apple cider like Angry Orchard or Bold Rock. It’s like fall in a glass! Cheers!
