30 Days of Beverages – Day 8 – Back to Where I Came From…

Uncategorized | August 8, 2009 | By

I talked about it once before, but many of you may not know that I was born in Kentucky, home to the world’s greatest horse race as well as a whole lot of gold. I didn’t really live there long. I was born at Fort Knox and I wasn’t very far into the world before we left that state and moved along in life. But, a Kentuckian I was born. Is that a word?
Today’s cocktail is an ode to my state of birth – no, not nudity, although if you drink enough of any of these you just might end up that way- Kentucky.
Kentucky is known for things I mentioned before, the derby and gold, but it is also known for Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Yum! I fell in love with it many moons ago and over the years have honed my loyalty to one brand – Knob Creek. Good stuff, I tell you, good stuff.
So, I went onto Knob Creek’s website thinking they’d have the best drink recipes made with their own brand and stumbled across a recipe for a Side Car. Sounded interesting enough for me!
This is a bold drink for those who love Straight Bourbon Whiskey…those who don’t, need not apply. A great cocktail to end the day with – shake the cobwebs outta your head and forget about work, or anything else that ails ya’! Cheers!
Side Car
1 part Knob Creek Bourbon
1/2 part lemon juice
1/2 part triple sec
You know what to do with it!
A taste of what’s to come – My friend Sherri gave me a jar of something today…..
Yep, it looks like a little jar of moonshine, but it’s not. It’s a tasty treat that I’m going to be using in an upcoming drink this week – a tribute to Sherri’s trip to Napa and to the good ole bubbly….stay tuned!
