If you’re worried that bourbon is too heavy for the heat, doesn’t mean the spirit should be limited to the calendar’s colder months.

Don’t you worry we have got the perfect solution for you…….amazing Bourbon Cocktails.


While everyone and their sister-in-law is spending the early weeks of summer mastering a cleanse, bartenders around the country continue to push the boundaries of what we think about when we think about cocktails. Banana bread syrup? Edible butterflies? Some hot salsa shaken up with your tequila? It’s just the tip of the rocks glass. So, put down your salt water flush kit and yoga mat, and get out to have ones of these refreshing bourbon cocktails.

Here are some of my favourite recipes for cool and refreshing bourbon cocktails — perfect for your next backyard barbecue or summer cookout.
