Bourbon Cocktails for a Crowd

My trusty friend’s Sarah and Nick were a big component of the delivery of our Deviled Egg and Bourbon delivery party on Saturday. I think many would argue the bourbon might be more important than the eggs… So, Sarah and Nick recommended pre-mixed bourbon cocktails to make the party simpler on the hosts. Sarah mixed the cocktails prior to arriving and guests were able to serve themselves delicious Manhattan’s and Brown Derby Cocktails on their own.

I love the simplicity of this idea and the drinks we’re just as delicious. I highly recommend this delivery for any big holiday party you might be hosting this season. Make sure to serve over ice!

These sweet 1618 Downtown bottles are a regular water delivery mechanism at my lunch meetings. I giggled to have them at home filled up with booze. Thanks Nick! For those looking, you can easily find these kinds of bottles around town at kitchen stores.
