In our opinion, our award-winning high-rye bourbon deserves a celebration every day, but especially on National Bourbon Day! It's truly a staple around here at Bull Run due to its versatility. It can find its way into a variety of cocktails, but it's tough to beat the classic Bourbon Old Fashioned. Recipe below! How will you be celebrating our Straight Bourbon Whiskey today? Straight? In a cocktail? You decide. Cheers!
Ingredients - 1.5 oz Bull Run Straight Bourbon - 1 to 2 tsp of Simple Syrup (depends on how sweet you like it) - 1 tsp of soda water - 2 dashes Angostura bitters - 2 orange peels - 2 Maraschino cherries (splurge for Luxardo, or Amarena)
Directions Pour the simple syrup into a rocks glass. Add one of the cherries and one orange peel. Use a muddler to break down the fruit and mix in with the simple syrup. Pour in the water and combine. Stir in the Bourbon. Add a big ice cube or 1/2 cup of ice. Stir and serve with the other orange peel on the side in the glass and a cherry on top.
