Looking for simple bourbon cocktails recipes to make for your next party or a night sipping on the front porch? You will want to try these.

It’s no secret that I wasn’t much of a bourbon drinker before I started dating Mike. After he suggested I try Maker’s Mark with ginger ale though it became my drink. We also did quite a few distillery tours and visited many bourbon bars before I relocated to the bourbon capital of the world (Kentucky) last year.

Let me share some of the fun bourbon cocktails recipes I’ve created over the past few years.

One of the distillery tours we went on a few years ago was to Buffalo Trace. During the tasting portion we tried Bourbon Cream with root beer. It tasted amazing and quickly became one of our favorite evening drinks. I decided to kick it up a notch and make it a bourbon root beer float with vanilla and caramel gelato.

We did a culinary tour around Kentucky over the course of a year. At one of the stops, we were introduced to a peach bourbon cocktail. On our way home that day we stopped at the liquor store and picked up a few items to try to recreate it at home. We tested a few different methods over time, but we love this peach bourbon iced tea recipe the best.
