Bourbon lovers, this is your day. (Literally. It's National Whiskey Day.)
Hence, SoulBoxer Cocktail Co.'s Bourbon Old Fashioned might be the quickest and easiest way to celebrate. This high-end, locally made, ready-to-pour cocktail was created by Milwaukee's Jason Neu and Doug MacKenzie in mid-2017.
The Bourbon Old Fashioned is 68 proof and features top-shelf bourbon aged with tart Door County cherries and real orange peel, then mixed with Angostura bitters and cane sugar. It can be consumed on the rocks or with a splash of soda.
"We want the best bar in the neighborhood to be your home," says MacKenzie.
The Bourbon Old Fashioned is the company’s second ready-to-pour cocktail. The company introduced the SoulBoxer Brandy Old Fashioned in 2015.
"People love the concept of a really good ready-to-pour craft cocktail. We're proud to say that both of our Old Fashioneds have been received really well," Neu says.
