Urban Bourbon Manhattan Recipe


Bring on the Bourbon! We’re making an Urban Bourbon Manhattan recipe on this episode of the Mix, all while learning about Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail and history. Luckily, we have Louisville native Julie Smith to walk us through a bourbon flight, tell us all about her hometown (including details about a ghost named Willie) and why Carrie Nation gets a shoutout on the All Nations Bourbon bottle. Watch for a step by step guide to making the Manhattan – full recipe below!
