Bourbon Summer Cocktails


Many people think of winter and fireside sipping when we talk bourbon. We would like to share some delicious and refreshing bourbon cocktails that will keep you cool and happy sipping bourbon. There are several great combinations that can be made warm or cold depending on your mood and environment. One of the most popular summer cocktails in our tasting room and at tasting events is the Farmer’s cocktail. As always, good bourbon is great sipped on a large cube or sphere slowly and pleasurably so enjoy J. Henry Bourbons as you like them. Cheers!
