Are we sick of the 100-degree days yet? I know. I am. The one saving grace is that kids go back to school. No more days of getting home after work to find out the kids just woke up. My son even had the audacity to ask me, “What’s for breakfast,” at 3:30 in the afternoon. If that isn’t enough for you to grab a bourbon neat, then I don’t know what is!

Since not much is happening in August, I will get straight to the bourbon.

Just Because
Wild Turkey 101

  • The Russell’s have perfected their craft for over 50 years and while Wild Turkey is nothing new to bourbon drinkers, I like to kick it old school sometimes. At 101 proof, this bourbon includes all the finer points of whiskey—Flavor, heat and drinkability.


Trying not to kill your kids
1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon 

  • At 129 proof, this whiskey will surely do the job. This bourbon packs great flavor, with distinguishable notes of orange, cinnamon, and licorice. Don’t let the proof scare you away from this excellent bottle of bourbon.



Trying to stay cool
Bourbon Rickey

  • The Bourbon Rickey is the perfect pick if you want a refreshing cocktail that isn’t sweet. Named after a Washington D.C. bar regular and politician Joe Rickey. Bourbon plus soda water with a bunch of lime. You can use your favorite bourbon, but I have found a lower proof works well.
