Since 2007, September has been designated as the National Bourbon Month and in celebration, Kentucky for Kentucky got their hands on a copy of “How To Make Old Kentucky Famed Drinks“, a wonderful book of 47 classic bourbon cocktails, curated in 1934 by the Brown-Forman Distillery Company of Louisville, Kentucky. From all appearances, the book had been included with the purchase of Brown-Forman spirit.
This cocktail book measures in at a small 2”x4” but is a discovery that’s going to serve us all up right with 47 delicious bourbon cocktails. Published a year after the repeal of the 18th amendment, this little book gave Kentuckians a go-to guide for mixing bourbon—and now we’re ready to crack into the archives and let this little guide transport us back to our roots.
