Spice it up with Old Forester’s Appalachian Buck

With winter temps holding strong, you’ll need something to warm your core this weekend. The Appalachian Buck features Old Forester’s 1870 bourbon, known for a palate of “baking spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) that flows into a citrus-fruit mix and shortbread sweetness”. Between the ginger beer, apple cider and layered spice finish from the bourbon, you won’t even notice it’s an iced cocktail.

• 2 oz Old Forester 1870
• 1 oz Apple Cider
• .5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
• .25 oz Maple Syrup
• 3 oz Ginger Beer

Add all ingredients (except Ginger Beer) into a mixing glass. Add ice and shake. Strain into a highball glass over new ice and top with ginger beer.
