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.

HOLIDAYS

FIRESIDE CHAT

Grab a few friends and some hot drinks, then enjoy a comfy night at home.

For an aromatic fire, try one of these easy options: Toss rosemary, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg or other fresh herbs or spices into your fire. They will lightly sent the air and your house. Use dried orange peels for kindling. The peels easily dry in the open air and, because of the oil in the peel, burn longer than paper. The peels create a wonderful aroma as they burn. Add incense to your fire, but have several sticks on hand-they burn quickly.
