“Keep your friends close & your bourbon closer.”
-Old Kentucky Proverb

We couldn’t agree more. Our resident cocktail enthusiast, Kelly Schneider loves using bourbon in cocktails and she shared her recipe for a Kentucky Blossom with us. You can make her bourbon cocktail in just five steps and we think you’ll find it’s good to the last drop.

Directions:

  1. Add the Woodford Reserve, Simple Syrup and St. Germain to a 16 oz. glass filled with ice.
  2. Squeeze three of your orange slices above the 16 oz. glass so it can collect the juices and add the squeezed orange slices to the glass.
