No excuses needed for enjoying one of these drinks
I was also going to write something about how the weather has been cold and we need cocktails to deal with it, but… Who really needs an excuse to have a little bourbon? Not this kid.
Just enjoy a drink. You deserve it. Treat yo self.
Looking for other bourbon drinks and treats?
Maple Bourbon Moscow Mules, Bourbon Moscow Mules, Bourbon Pumpkin Shrub Cocktails, and a classic Old Fashioned ought to keep you plenty satisfied. This is just the tip of the iceberg, though. Search “bourbon” on this site and see for yourself.
