Cocktail Hour: The Bourbon Buckeroo

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 23, 2016

It’s time for another deck drink, and the Bourbon Buckeroo is one of my favourites. Deck drinks as you know are that class of cocktails which are so easy to make that you can literally put all of your bar tools away and mix them up on your backyard deck as you enjoy the sunshine. No shakers, no strainers, and no fuss.

The great thing about deck drinks is that they are not only easy to make, they are also refreshing crowd-pleasers. You can haul your cooler full of ice out on to your back deck, fill it with cans of soda, place a couple of bottles of rum and whisky on the table with tray of sliced fruit and maybe a bottle of bitters, and then everyone can mix their own bar drinks to their own taste.

Buckeroo SAM_2401The Bourbon Buckeroo requires just three ingredients: Bourbon, Cola, and Bitters. Bourbon, which is at its heart a corn whiskey, mixes particularly well with cola and adding a dash or two of bitters gives this deck drink a nice extra depth of flavour. Of course, lots of ice makes it a cold refreshing serve on a lazy hot afternoon.

You probably do not need the recipe repeated; but here it is anyways:

Bourbon Buckeroo

1 1/2 oz Bourbon (George Dickel No. 12 in this case)
dash Angostura Bitters
Slice of Lime for garnish (optional)

Build in a tall glass with ice
Complete with Cola
Garnish with a lime slice

Enjoy Responsibly!

Note: Tomorrow I will be reviewing a great bourbon for Buckeroos, George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky.
