Bottoms Up!

Pace WebbComment

Hey, party people! Did you know that June 14th is National Bourbon Day? Until a few days ago, I sure didn’t. But since I’m very much a bourbon gal, I decided to share my top picks with y’all. You’ll find them all below. But you won’t find any cocktail recipes. Man up and drink any of these bourbons on the rocks like a real lady!

1. BASIL HAYDEN’S KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

When I want a super smooth whiskey, straight up, this is the one I reach for every time. For me, Basil Hayden’s is the Cadillac of whiskey.

2. MICHTER’S

Don’t you just love to hole up at the bar, tell the bartenders what you’ve enjoyed in the past, and then let them introduce you to new flavors? That’s how I discovered Michter’s. I was at a tasting at Seven Grand, and the moment this stuff went down the hatch, I was hooked.

3. HIGH WEST AMERICAN PRAIRIE RESERVE

This premium blend of High West bourbons comes from Utah, y’all. Who knew Mormon country could produce such stellar whiskey? But they do. Trust me on this.

4. CROWN ROYAL

Though technically a rye whiskey, Crown Royal will always make the cut. Don't judge. Even though it is a Canadian whiskey, it's really popular in Texas and makes me nostalgic for home every time I take that first sip.

5. Old Grand-Dad

For when you're young and on a budget. But soon enough, you’ll discover it's actually good as a low-brow choice, even when you’re rollin’ in the dough.
