D.O.T.M. – January 2012

Today is the first of what will hopefully be a tradition here at davedrinks – the Drink Of The Month – today brought to you by the month of January.

So this months choice is… the Kentucky River.

It’s new, it’s delicious, it’s simple.  I don’t think it takes much more than that.  If you haven’t tried it, you are doing yourself a disservice, especially if you are a fan of bourbon like myself!  Everyone I have made this for has enjoyed it.  To top it all off, while sipping Kentucky River’s last week at our poker game, I took home the big prize.  There you have it – tastes great and it even makes you money – what are you waiting for?

Special thanks to Tony for encouraging me to make this at home after sampling at Nobel Experiment.

Look it up, mix it up and let me know if you agree!

Kentucky River

Happy New Year… almost.  One last drink for 2011, and it’s a good one – the Kentucky River.  This fantastic libation was discovered at Noble Experiment.

  • 1.5 ounces Makers Mark
  • 0.75 ounce creme de cacao
  • Splash of Angostura bitters

Pour into a rocks glass over ice and give it a stir.  Done.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Chocolate and bourbon – how do you go wrong?
  • Adds a touch of sweetness to great bourbon.
  • Approachable even if bourbon ain’t your thing.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 9/10
  • Strength: 8/10
  • Sweetness: 2/10
  • I like it!
