This list features some of my all-time favorite bourbon-based cocktails. While most drinks here feature bourbon, there are a few that are notably made with bourbon or rye interchangeably (Manhattan and old fashioned). This list contains a variety of bourbon concoctions ranging from sweet to boozy to citrusy. Enjoy!

Manhattan lovers listen up. The Brooklyn cocktail is a classic whiskey drink made with maraschino liqueur, dry vermouth, and bitters.
Manhattan Cocktail Recipe
The Manhattan drink made two slightly different ways (classic versus perfect). Either way, it’s always constructed with bourbon, vermouth, and bitters.
