Kentucky 75

Bulleit Bourbon and beer transform this take on a classic French 75 into the quintessential cocktail to celebrate National Beer Day!


1 lemon

1 teaspoon sugar

1 ounce Bulleit Bourbon

Handful of ice

2 & 1/2 ounces beer


1. Cut lemon in half. Juice one half to yield 1 tablespoon of juice. Set aside other half for making a lemon twist.

2. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice, sugar, and Bulleit Bourbon to a cocktail shaker. Add in a handful of ice cubes. Shake well.

3. Strain into a champagne glass. Top with beer and lightly stir.

4. Lemon twist: Slice a 1⁄2-inch-thick round of lemon off of the reserved lemon half. Using a small paring knife, cut the lemon slice almost in half by starting your cut just below the top rind (where the pulp begins) and slicing through the bottom of the round. Then cut out all of the pulp so you are left with just a long strip of peel. Twist the peel into a curly-q shape and press the curl between two fingers so that the peel holds its shape. Garnish drink with lemon twist.
