The Bourbon Cooler cocktail has a long and interesting history that can be traced back to 1839, when it first appeared in print. The first mention of the drink came about in an 1839 article written by Jerry Thomas, who was known as “The Professor” for his bartending skills. In this article, he writes about a number of drinks that were popular at that time. He calls this drink a “Bourbon Punch” and it is made from Bourbon whiskey, sugar, water and orange peel. The term “cooler” most likely became associated with this drink because Jerry Thomas suggest serving it over crushed ice.
