A rose by any other name...

Updated: May 4


I recently visited the Four Roses distillery in Kentucky. It's a beautiful campus that has a Spanish edge. I of course, bought two bottles of bourbon at the distillery. It was the last distillery trip I took in Kentucky (more on that soon) and I loved how unique it was compared to the other distilleries. It had a lovely charm even on a rainy day. Both bottles that I purchased are unique bottles (one was just available at the distillery). Inspired by my trip and my new bottles, I have crafted some new cocktails to try!
