As much as I love margaritas and fresh lemonade, I'm eager and excited for fall cocktails. Highest on my list: bourbon drinks. I love bourbon with citrus, bourbon with ginger, bourbon with...just about anything.
Looking for a bit of crisp-weather cocktail inspiration, I convinced a few bartender friends to share their recipe secrets so I could test them out at home. In the slideshow, you'll find 10 of my favorite bourbon cocktail recipes, from classics and twists on the classics to originals from bars and restaurants in New York City.
Whether you're a diehard whiskey fanatic or no, there's something here for you, ranging from refreshing highballs to deeper, boozier stirred drinks. Check them all out and get the recipes in the slideshow above »
