Cozied up with Bourbon

Nothing instantly warms you up like a good sip of whiskey or bourbon. You can feel it in your chest right away.

While we working with our friends at Garrison Brothers recently, we realized it could benefit us all to have a few more bourbon based cocktails. After all, I grew up on putting a splash of water in a glass of bourbon on the rocks.

Don't get me wrong, that holds up. But if you're looking for something with a little more flavor that won't burn your nostril hairs out, you can try one of these recipes!

They're sure to keep you warm all winter long! Which of course in Texas is about two weeks.

 Starting with our Blackberry Mint, which I think is the best pairing with a dark liquor, we have three stellar recipes you can give a go!
