His and Hers Bourbon Recipes

If you’re just tuning in…the Gibson’s just finished a big fat kitchen renovation. So naturally, we’ve been hanging out in our new kitchen making delicious recipes and meticulously cleaning everything. (Because it will always stay as clean as the day we finished the renovation… right?)

And speaking of recipes, we’ve been stirring up a few new cocktail recipes, too. A year or so ago, we turned our old hutch into a bar, and recently it’s been filled with the Gibson’s favorite spirit: bourbon. Our favorite local mash is Belle Meade Bourbon (obviously… because Charlie and Andy’s story is so rad). But when we branch out into Kentucky—we’ve been enjoying a different variety: Bulleit Bourbon.

But when using Bourbon… we’ve got “his” and “hers” standbys. Special thanks to the folks over at Bulleit for helping us craft a few good recipes!

HIS:

The Old, Old Fashioned. (None of that bacon-infused business.)

  • 2-3 dashes of orange bitters
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 3 oz Bulleit Bourbon
  • 1 twist orange

Directions: Muddle bitters with simple syrup. Add ice. Stir. Then add bourbon and water. Garnish with orange slice. Sip responsibly.

HERS:

The Mint Julep

  • 1 1/3 oz. Bulleit Rye
  • 1 ½-2 oz. Simple Syrup
  • Fresh mint leaves

Preparation: Muddle mint leaves, simple syrup and crushed ice in rocks glass. Add Bulleit Rye and fill glass with ice. Pour into cocktail shaker, shake vigorously and serve in rocks glass with fresh mint garnish. Yum.

So there you have it folks. Our favorite sips. We even ordered one of these prints from Bearings for our kitchen (more on that later) because whiskey has become our favorite. Do you have any favorite bourbon drinks?
