Date-Night In: Libations Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 0 Comments


This Valentine’s Day, we’re giving you tips to creating a perfect bourbon-inspired Date-Night In with your significant other. Sure, we love a date-night out, but why not try something new, and craft the perfect cocktail for a romantic night at home.

Here’s our recipe for a perfect Bourbon & Branch.

Serving and garnish:Bonnie & Clyde Whiskey Glasses
This simple, yet classic cocktail is traditionally served with little garnish, but a lemon wedge adds some color.  Our biggest secret to keeping the bourbon strong and the drink refreshing: Use an ice mold to make one large ice sphere, such as our Whiskey Ball. This will keep the drink cool while slowly and evenly melting ice into the drink, thus not watering down the flavor too quickly. We love this drink served in a rocks glass for the perfect portion.

If you tend toward something a little sweeter, try our signature cocktail, the Liquid Sunshine.

  • 1 ½ oz of your choice of bourbon
  • ½ oz limoncello
  • 4 oz freshly brewed iced tea
  • Mix, and stir

Serving and garnish:
For this zesty take on a Bourbon & Branch, we recommend garnishing with a sprig of mint and a lemon wedge. Also, we love using whiskey stones instead of ice, so not to water down the flavors, and serving in a copper mug to keep it cool.
