Lonerider Spirits “Autumn Remedies – Bundled Bourbon Cocktail Box” for November
November is when the weather gets colder and we possibly need a few home remedies to protect us against the chill that is in the air. Our preferred cold weather remedies at Lonerider Spirits usually involve the inclusion of bourbon! The health benefits of bourbon are numerous according to what one can find on the internet and consist of: weight loss, controls diabetes, red, decreases risk of stroke, promotes healthy cholesterol levels and also lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer.
We celebrate the unique curative properties of bourbon we have three different cocktails – and as a first for our bourbon box kit, we will have you infuse your own bourbon for one of the cocktails! And our mystery gift is a Original Outlaw cigar that has been made with tobacco leaves steeped in Lonerider Sherry Cask Bourbon Whiskey! The cocktails featured in this box are the Kentucky Nyquil, Werther Hot Toddy and the Fall-Spiced Old Fashioned. All of these cocktails will warm you up for the cold days ahead! If you want to skip ahead, you can order here! 3 cocktail recipes are included in each box with enough to make 4 cocktails per recipe for a total of 12 cocktails!
Let’s explore the box that will be released in November 2020!
The first recipe is courtesy Christopher Brian, general manager and beverage director, Plan Check Kitchen & Bar, Los Angeles.
This recipe—essentially, a ginger-tinged warm lemonade—takes the winter edge off nicely. It’s the “not-so-sweet” version of the “Werther Hot Toddy” (below). Since some people don’t want to drink their dessert to get warm. It’s more of your traditional “hot toddy”.
A hot toddy, also known as hot whiskey in Ireland, is typically a mixed drink made of liquor and water with honey (or, in some recipes, sugar), herbs (such as tea) and spices, and served hot. Hot toddy recipes vary and are traditionally drunk before retiring for the night, in wet or cold weather or to relieve the symptoms of the cold and flu. In How to Drink, Victoria Moore describes the drink as “the vitamin C for health, the honey to soothe, the alcohol to numb.” – Wikipedia
Werther’s Hot Toddy
This recipe comes to us from “Delish”.
As mentioned above – some people like to drink their desserts and this version of a hot toddy does not disappoint. Caramel does a good job of masking bourbon, so if you don’t like the bite – this recipe is for you!
The recipe is made with Werther’s Original hard candy. The sweet brand of candy is named after the town of Werther in Westphalia, where the company was founded in 1903. From 1969, the sweet was marketed under the brand name Werthers Echte. The brand name Werther’s Original was adopted in the 1990s for the international market. They are now manufactured nearby, in Halle (Westfalen). (Wikipedia). Most people have received some from their grandparents or someone who liked to cash in on blue plate specials.
Fall-Spiced Old Fashioned
Ready for fall? We have an Old-Fashioned cocktail for you!
This recipe is the first recipe where you will actually infuse bourbon for 24 hours to get some of the fall spices to bond with the bourbon. You will infuse the bourbon with warm fall spices—cinnamon, star anise and cloves.
If you’re searching for something to serve around the fire pit or a staple for an evening at home – this delightful twist on an old classic is very easy to make and will spice up any evening.
That’s the rundown of the Bundled Bourbon Box for November! No alcohol is in this box – we will tell you what to provide in the kit instructions!
