COVID – 19 Stress Relievers…

masksIt is mid June in Bourbon Country and Thoroughbroads – Scarlett & Robyn are enjoying Peanut Bourbon related cocktails at Happy Hour over the internet once a week. After Robyn found Skrewball Whiskey in Alabama and brought it with her on her last trip to Bardstown, KY., both are addicted to the yummy peanut butter taste now and have been experimenting with various drink concoctions (recipes below).

Scarlett likes hers straight but on ice and Robyn just in a glass is fine. But, here is a great sexy way of having it just on ice….take a good heavy cocktail glass and fill it half with water then tilt the glass at an angle and place it in the freezer so that it is still angled but will not fall over. Freeze the water then pull the glass out and pour in the Whiskey and ENJOY –

The Bourbon Triangle!

Did This Recipe Come From Cornbread Mafia Country…

Okay, if you don’t know you should. there is a book called “The Cornbread Mafia” that has gained a great deal of popularity over the years. It is a semi-true history within the official Home of Bourbon..Bardstown, Kentucky (since it is registered as THE BOURBON CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.) With that in mind, during National Bourbon Month, we offer up this great recipe to go along with a glass of fine Bourbon and a Bourbon marinated steak hot off the grill..Robyn will be supplying a June Thoroughbroad story soon, so watch for it, check out the above book and enjoy this side dish with a summer night on the deck! It will go with just about anything.

½ cup diced Vidalia onion

¼ cup diced red bell pepper

¼ cup diced celery

2 cups cooked crumbled cornbread

¼ tsp cracked black pepper
