An old fashioned

When you think of Kentucky, what do you imagine? In case you forgot, they make Bourbon in Kentucky. We went to a presentation at Locust Grove about how to make the old fashioned cocktail. At Locust Grove, we listened to two women discuss the history of the cocktail and the old fashioned beverage. They showed us how to make the traditional cocktail, one with strawberry and rhubarb, and one with black cherry.

The lineup

The black cherry was made with a double oak bourbon. All of them were very good, and my favorite was the one with rhubarb, of course.

Afterwards, we went to dinner at the Captain’s table. It was a beautiful evening.
