SEPTEMBER IS BOURBON MONTH

Bald eagles, apple pies, football-it can’t get any more American than that. Unless we’re talking liquor. Did you know the official national spirit of the US is bourbon whiskey? We can all thank Kentucky for not only producing around 97% of the world’s supply, but for making this spirit a national symbol. In 1964, Congress dictated that bourbon was “distinctive” to the US. People took that to mean it was our national liquor; however, in 2007, a Kentucky senator realized the shocking mistake and pushed for a resolution to be passed and luckily succeeded. Today, bourbon drinkers enjoy their whiskey in many ways and during any occasion. From Manhattans to barbecue glazes, night caps to tailgating, bourbon is as celebrated as America herself.

MANHATTAN: Bourbon Whiskey 2 1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth 3/4 oz. Biters Splash. Ice. Cherry. Combine bourbon, vermouth, bitters and ice in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits or cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled glass and strain the bourbon mixture over the cherry.

Information and Recipe taken from the ABC Liquor Store news letter.
