Bourbon drinks are on the rise and we wanted to introduce you to a new cocktail to delight both beginners and aficionados. This Handcrafted Classic Cocktail is a play on a whiskey sour and uses red wine to balance the bourbon. What's a sour and what does the "W" stand for? The sour gets its name from the key ingredient, lemon juice. The "W" is actually a two-fer and represents Woodford Reserve and wine. And why wine? Wine not?! In all seriousness, the sour notes are so refreshing and bright that it matches that whiskey profile – making it perfect for all seasons. This is just one of our newest cocktails. Ask your bartender or server what’s new the next time you visit us. In the meantime, impress your bourbon whiskey lovers at home.
