This weeks Bourbon and Plants Recipe was stolen from my better half Lindsey. We were having lunch at Sweet Hazel with her co workers and out of nowhere she says, "I can't wait to make burritos with the Thanksgiving leftovers." Well, it was a great idea.
She took a tortilla and smeared the cranberries on it. then heated up the stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegan turkey, and spinach. Wrapped it all up and then smothered it with mushroom gravy. Next year we are skipping Thanksgiving dinner and jumping into Friday leftovers.
I've been rewatching the first four seasons of Yellowstone. Always crave a Bullet Bourbon when I watch it since it's all over in the series. I guess product placement really does work.
This weeks pick is a smooth one and the perfect sippin bourbon for the ball game.
As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve year old W.L. Weller is aged far longer than most wheated bourbons. This offering is a smooth, easy-going and balanced bourbon with a beautiful deep bronze color. I love all the Weller's, but this one is the Holy Grail for me.
I love this yummy Kentucky water almost as much as I love the story behind it. My favorite part of bourbon is learning the history of where it came from and Four Roses has one of the best.
As you can see the Angels Envy did stand a chance at our bbq last night out on the ranch. I would never try it for years because of the angel wings on the back of the bottle. I know, stupid reason. One day I tried it by accident and fell in love with it.
Even though it's not a traditional bourbon it is still this weeks pick of the week because it is so damn good! I first tried it at the Bourbon and Beyond Festival back in 2018 where I met Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. He was so cool, and the thirty minute convo I had with him will be something I always cherish.
I found this bottle in my storage from 2 years ago. Now I enjoy Woodford, but this bottle was extremely smooth. Not sure if letting it sit in the dark for two years did that to it, but I am going to try it again and see.
