Boozing With Willie: The Bleacher Creature (Made Using Bulleit Bourbon)

The Bleacher Creature

If you’re a New Yorker or a true baseball fan in general, hopefully you know what a bleacher creature is. If not, I’m going to explain it to you the best I can in just a few sentences. Bleacher Creatures are the most hardcore Yankee fans you’ll ever sit next to at Yankees Stadium. They claim the cheap seats in the outfield religiously and run things by their rules. From the roll call of each player that takes the field at the start of each home game, to the banishment of opposing teams’ fans, it’s truly an experience to see these cats in action. As a life long Yankees fan myself, this drink was created as a tip of my Yankee cap to these blue collar fans.

Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks because you’ll be using both for this cocktail…Well, maybe not the peanuts, but they do go well on the side. I went with Bulleit Bourbon to reflect the quality of these fans along with hints of hazelnut and almond liqueurs. So the next time you’re watching the game or pre-gaming prior to going to the ballpark, enjoy this cocktail. Play ball and cheers!


2 Parts Bulleit Bourbon
1 Part Disaronno Amaretto
1 Part Frangelico
1/2 Part Fresh Lemon Juice
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of sugar
1 box of Cracker Jacks
1 Lemon Wedge


Crush about 3 handfuls of Cracker Jacks and set aside. Next, take a chilled cocktail glass and rim your glass with lemon juice from your wedge. Take the glass and rim the glass with the crushed Cracker Jacks and set aside.

In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine all remaining ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into your prepared cocktail glass over ice and enjoy.
