Kick Off Your Weekend EARLY with Russell’s Reserve Cocktails!

I am always on the look-out for new brands of spirits and more so if they have great recipes. I nailed it x 2 with Russell’s Reserve Whiskeys.. which sound fantastic!

Russell’s Reserve is a hand-crafted and small batch bourbon and rye whiskey created by Wild Turkey’s legendary Master Distiller, Jimmy Russell, and his son, Master Distiller Eddie Russell. It uniquely reflects the expertise that comes with their over 94 years of combined experience.

 

10-year-old

 

Russell’s Reserve Bourbon is a beautiful deep amber color with a nose rich in vanilla, oak, and toffee. Its mellow warmth is balanced by notes of white pepper and orange peel. Russell’s Reserve Bourbon was awarded a 95 Points and the Chairman’s Trophy Finalist distinction at Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

There are five different whiskeys in this portfolio:
Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon

Russell’s Reserve 6 Year Old Rye

Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon

Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Rye

Russell’s Reserve 2002

There’s a lot to choose from and eventually you will work through the different varieties.

Ingredients:

1 ounce Russell’s Reserve 10-Year-Old Bourbon
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce Cinzano 1757 Vermouth
Garnish with a cherry

Preparation:

— Combine Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon, Campari, and vermouth in a cocktail shaker
— Fill with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of shaker is frosty (about 30 seconds)
— Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe or a rocks glass filled with fresh ice
— Garnish with a cherry

Here’s another recipe that is also a Boulevardier but different because it’s a spin on the classic Boulevardier from BA Josh Cameron of Boulton & Watt.

Bear Necessities Boulevardier

Ingredients:
1.5 Russels Reserve 10 Year Bourbon
0.25 Braulio Amaro
0.5 Lime juice
0.5 Simple syrup
Bar spoon of Fig jam.

Method:

Combine all ingredients together, stir and strain over a rocks glass with ice.
