Recommended liquor: So that you can start mixing your cocktails as soon as your box arrives, why not go get your bottle of bourbon now? Each of this month's featured bartenders has a recommendation for you! Any of them will work well for all three recipes found in this box, depending on your preference:
Christine Wiseman likes the roundness that the 100 proof gives Evan Williams Bottled in Bond Bourbon and says that its sweet and light oak notes play well with the cocktails in this box.
Scott LoBianco says Angel's Envy Bourbon is a beautiful expression of finished whiskey. The port finish adds a rich depth and spice.
Robert Eldridge is recommending Woodford Reserve Bourbon for its richness and high corn content. Woodford is a small-batch premium brand with focus on quality and consistency.
Recommended amount: To make all 12 drinks, you'll need 22.5 oz of bourbon; a medium (750 ml) bottle will be your best bet.
Recommended barware: A few different jiggers that measure 1/4, 3/4, 1, 1 1/2, and 2 oz, as well as a strainer, shaker, mixing glass, and citrus reamer or juicer. Additionally, if your fridge doesn't have a crushed ice option and you can't get pebble ice at the store, you'll need to make your own and can use either a Lewis bag and wooden mallet or a Ziploc freezer bag and another blunt kitchen object, such as a pestle. These are not all strictly necessary, but will improve your mixology experience.
Recommended glassware: Collins glass, rocks glass, and extra points if you use a julep cup this month :)
Recommended ice: To make all 12 cocktails in one go, you'll need about 6 pounds of ice (6 ice trays’ worth).
