Bourbon is a distinctly American spirit, connoting images of Southern living and summer cocktails. Like a square is to a rectangle, bourbon is always a type of whiskey, but whiskey is not always bourbon. Legally, whiskey is only truly bourbon if it is made in America and is made from between 51% and 79% corn. Bourbon is amber colored and usually a bit sweeter and heavier than generic whiskey. 95% of bourbon is made in Kentucky, making it a truly Southern beverage. Add mint and sugar for a Mint Julep or citrus and sugar for an Old Fashioned to enjoy a classic, American cocktail on a hot summer afternoon.
Expert bartender Zach Wilks gives infused bourbon a twist of cherry and cola, creating a refreshing and delicious drink for any occasion. The simplicity is perhaps most appealing: simply pour infused bourbon whiskey over ice, add cherry and then pour on as much cola as you please. The result is a classic drink that is sure to refresh guests at an outdoor get together or summer dinner.
2 ounces infused whiskey
8 ounces Cola
1 cup ice
