Recipe: Kevin

Cheers to Bourbon Heritage Month!

Kevin is a play on a cold Irish coffee, featuring cold brew and bourbon from our 21c Private Barrel Selects program. This booze-forward cocktail will surprise you with a smooth nutty flavor profile and hint of spice. We recommend sipping all month long, but beware this cocktail packs a mean caffeinated punch.



1.5 oz 21c Selects Woodford Reserve 2018

1.5 oz Cold Brew Concentrate

¾ oz Pecan Orgeat

¾ oz Cardamaro Whipped Cream

Shake all ingredients except for cream and double strain into a Glencairn. Top with the whipped cream and garnish with coffee beans. 


About the Bourbon

90.4 Proof

Appearance: Amber with Copper highlights.

Nose: Vanilla, dried cherry, poached pear and candied pecan.

Taste: Well rounded and smooth with hints of brown sugar, maple syrup, spiced baked pear and apple.

Finish: Pleasantly warm, toasty finish with cinnamon.

From start to finish, this bourbon is easy on the palate and mellow throughout. Pro tip: A typical batch of Woodford Reserve is 120 barrels and this particular selection is from a 2-barrel batch. Interested in adding this selection to your collection at home? Available for purchase at 21c Louisville shop for $62 per bottle.
