What We're Mixing

We're always looking for great new cocktails to make with my whiskey and bourbon. Here's a few of my favorite recipes. Feel free to send me yours to info@oldhumbledistilling.com


The Perfect Manhattan

A simple, elegant classic. 

  • 2 ounces Old Humble Special Reserve Whiskey

  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth

  • Two dashes bitters

Pour everything into a mixing glass, add ice, and stir well. Strain into a coupe, and garnish with a brandied cherry and a few drops of cherry juice.

The Old Fashioned

This is the apex cocktail, a simple combination of spirit, sweet and bitter. Arguments will go for days about simple syrup versus sugar cubes.  

  •  Two ounces Old Humble Straight Whiskey

  • 3/4 ounces simple syrup

  • Two dashes bitters

Pour the whiskey and syrup into a rocks glass, then add the bitters. Stir briefly - never shake - then add a large ice cube and an orange peel for garnish.

The Boulevardier

First popular in the 1920s, this cocktail will make a comeback. Or else I'm going to grow a handlebar mustache. 

  • 1 1/2 ounce Old Humble Special Reserve

  • 1 ounce Campari

  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

Pour all the ingredients over ice in a mixing glass, then stir well. Strain into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube. Add an orange twist for garnish.
