I can hardly believe it's already 4th of July weekend! My, my how time flies. So in the spirit of America and the weekend festivities I thought it only appropriate to choose a cocktail today that would best represent our fore fathers. They say bourbon is one of the only true American spirits, as noted by the US Congress in 1964, saying that Bourbon Whisky is a distinct product of the United States and could only be made in the USA. Wild Turkey dates back to 1869, Jim Beam was founded in 1795 and the man who is named for starting it all, Evan Williams was named the first distiller of Bourbon in 1783. So today I present to you...."The Lawn Dart."
Happy 4th of July! Have a safe weekend.
2 oz. Wild Turkey 101
4 oz. limeade
3 mint leaves, muddled
1 sprig of mint leaves, for garnish
Muddle mint with ice in a tumbler, pour in Wild Turkey 101 and limeade and shake. Strain into a highball filled with ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint leaves.
