Bourbon and Baker brings Mixology to the Little Apple


Don’t let the location fool you. Cocktail culture is alive and well in the Midwest. Just look as far as Bourbon and Baker in Manhattan, Kansas for proof.

Purple Rose of the Desert Sage


Back on June 14, the cocktail world celebrated National Bourbon Day. We celebrated, too, but perhaps a bit too much.

REVIEW – FEW Bourbon Whiskey


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★☆ Definitely not the ideal bourbon to introduce a newcomer, but for a small batch American, it’s a bit of brilliance, if not wholly balanced.

REVIEW – Angel’s Envy Bourbon


Angel’s Envy neat is the spirit at its strongest. It embodies the perfect balance of sweetness and spice that you’d expect from a higher-quality bourbon. It finishes clean and is, perhaps, just a bit too easy to drink.

Three Bourbon Cocktails for Derby Day That Aren’t Mint Juleps


While the Mint Julep is a damn fine cocktail (and one of our favorites), there are a lot of other options out there to tickle your Bourbon bone for Derby Day.

Four Roses Single Barrel Review

Black Mass


If dessert isn’t your bag for Halloween, there are plenty of other cocktails out there for you to make. This one packs a punch, and can be brutal the next day if you let them get out of hand. 2 oz bourbon (We used Bowman Brothers Virginia Straight Bourbon) 2 oz Tatratea Original (Black Tea […]

Bowman Brothers Virginia Straight Bourbon


This is one of the better bourbons we’ve had the pleasure of sampling here at Cocktails, 365. It’s not going to move heaven and earth for you, and at roughly $30 it’s not going to be your go-to bourbon for large crowds. However, you can do a lot worse at $30 a bottle.
