In case you couldn’t tell, we enjoy a great drink. With the weather changing and those cooler nights creeping in, it’s time for some cold-weather cocktails. The good folks over at Bardstown Bourbon Company are back with a recipe that will undoubtedly provide some warmth during those chilly evenings. Today we get a look at an interestingly titled drink dubbed Best Spuds.
This recipe is packed with unique flavor that will get you through the coolest evenings of Fall. The Best Spuds calls for a blend of Bardstown Bourbon Co. Fusion Series, which is paired with sweet potato butter, boiling water, and freshly grated nutmeg. Sounds interesting, right? For anyone wondering what sweet potato butter is all about, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there too.
This recipe might not be the easiest or quickest one to make, but it’s certainly one you will want more of. Best Spuds are perfect for nights with your best buds, or your lady, or just a great way to combat the cold with something flavorful. You can check out the full recipe for Best Spuds below, but don’t take our word for it.
Try it out for yourself. While you’re at it, be sure to keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more great drinks and cold weather cocktails coming very soon.
