Wild Turkey Gives Us A Rooster of A Cocktail

In honor of the opening of True Grit, the all-star remake of one of the all-time greatest films, Wild Turkey has put together this Old West cocktail with all the ingredients—the gold, the grit, the sarsaparilla and the whiskey—that shaped the now-mythic American West.

So catch a matinee, come home and make yourself up a “Rooster.” What better way to follow a new classic than with another?

Check out the recipe below and give it a try. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know if it is any good!

The Rooster
1 1/2 oz Wild Turkey 101
1/2 oz cinnamon schnapps laced with gold flakes
4 oz Sarsaparilla or any root beer
Salted rim (provides the grit!)

Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve Arriving Soon

Bourbon Buzz just received the following information from Knob Creek:

Knob Creek has big news, and we wanted our faithful Stillhouse fans to be the first to know: In just a few weeks, we’re launching Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve, the first single-barrel offering from Knob Creek®.

Knob Creek is the only bourbon that puts as much effort into our passion as you put into yours and as a result, our new Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is a truly extraordinary bourbon. Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve has been hand selected, barrel-by-barrel to be a unique expression of Knob Creek’s rich, mature flavor. Bottled at near barrel strength of 120 proof, Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve will offer you a smooth, nuanced experience with even more of the rich wood and vanilla notes that have made Knob Creek the standout bourbon that it is.

You won’t have to wait much longer: We’ll be shipping our first batch early next year. We’ll send you more information in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned. And get ready to toast a deliciously rewarding new year!
