Whether you enjoy your football on a more collegiate level or are more of a Monday Night Football fan, you can’t deny the power of an exceptional football-inspired cocktail. With football season now upon us both Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey and Crown Royal have crafted a handful of drink recipes that would be perfect for tailgating, at home viewings, or however you choose to root on your favorite team. I’m a big fan of the classic whiskey sour cocktail so I’m really impressed with the uniqueness of Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey’s “Ginger Whiskey Sour.” If the whiskey sour isn’t quite down your lane then I’m sure you’ll find a favorite among the drink recipes below. Oh, and one last thing…wait for it…wait for it…GO FALCONS!
