Chef Cory Bahr's Ol' Smokey Bourbon Cocktail
Who doesn't love a great bourbon cocktail? I can't think of many a true Southern Lady or Gent who can truthfully answer "no" to that question. I know that I personally, am a die hard fan of this Old Fashioned variation in particular.
The Ol' Smokey was created by Chef Cory Bahr, owner of Restaurant Cotton and Nonna in Monroe, Louisiana, as a tribute to his grandfather and childhood memories of the good times they shared at the family's hunting camp. Chef Bahr reminisces about evenings spent there, the smell of smoke from the wood fire and the smell of whiskey as he would keep the glasses full. He lovingly refers to it as "my childhood in a glass".
