As today is National Margarita Day, there are a few Bourbon distilleries that treat us to Bourbonritas during Kentucky Bourbon Festival at the The Great Kentucky Bourbon Tasting and Gala and other times throughout the year.

While we obviously enjoy Bourbon best straight, I am sharing these below for fun..All Margarita recipes on this link - National Margarita Day


1 part Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon

Splash of sweet & sour mix

Rose’rita Recipe


2 -parts Margarita Mix
1 -part Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon

Garnish with two maraschino cherries, and enjoy.
