The days are shorter and the nights are colder – and this year, let’s be real, that’s way more excuses than we need for a stiff drink. Make the most of nights at home by the fire with this rich, herbal cocktail mixed with Filibuster Dual Cask Bourbon.

The bourbon, with its politically-inspired name, claims to be “so good you won’t stop talking about it” and the 2 oz pour in the drink is perfect for a week when the talking heads on the TV won’t stop either. A toasted oak wine barrel finish on the Filibuster brings a deep, cozy feel to the drink, while orange peel adds a citrus pop. Mix one up tonight and fall forward into autumn flavors!
