Bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Bourbon has rules – it’s made from at least 51 percent corn, distilled to at most 160 proof (80 percent alcohol), and aged in a charred-oak barrel.
Bartender David Toby from Jack Allen’s Kitchen says bourbon is a versatile spirit that works in a variety of drink applications.
Toby uses a hand-selected barrel of Eagle Rare Kentucky bourbon to prepare one cocktail with maraschino juice and vermouth.
Another cocktail uses TX Blended Whiskey to create a TX Whiskey Shandy, which includes lemon, honey-fig syrup and apple cider.
