You can order your bourbon neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail. Whichever way you decide to drink your bourbon, please do so responsibly.
• Neat – A drink served “neat” is a single, unmixed liquor served without being chilled and without any water, ice, or other mixer. In other words, straight from the bottle to the glass.
• On the rocks – A drink served “On the rocks” is a single, unmixed liquor poured over, and served in, a glass of ice.
• Cocktail – A cocktail is an alcoholic drink consisting of a spirit (in this case bourbon) mixed with other ingredients, such as fruit juice, garnishes, lemonade, or cream. Common cocktails that can include bourbon are: Mint Julips, Highballs, Hot Toddys, Whiskey Sours and Old Fashioneds. There are, almost literally, a thousand other varieties of cocktails that can be made with bourbon, but remember, not every bartender uses the same recipe for any given drink, so if you’re dead set on bourbon (and why wouldn’t you be?) be sure to ask for it.
• Drink Responsibly – Never drink and drive. Always have a designated driver or be prepared to take a bus or taxi. Don’t drink on an empty stomach.
