When your go-to bourbon is Yellowstone, not just any ol’ cocktail will do. You need something special, a bit adventurous, and it needs to be a cocktail you can make just about anywhere. So, whether you’re home enjoying a night on the couch or you’ve just finished a day exploring the great outdoors, these simple cocktails with an adventurous twist might be exactly what you need.

Eastern Sour

Perhaps the simplest bourbon whiskey cocktail you can make is a whiskey sour. This Eastern Sour recipe provides a tangy twist.
 

Ingredients

2 oz Yellowstone Bourbon
2 oz Orange Juice
.75 oz Lemon Juice
.75 oz Orgeat
 
If you don’t have orgeat available, make an almond simple syrup by dissolving one cup of water with one cup of sugar and one teaspoon almond extract. It’s not exactly the same, but it adds some nice almond flavor.
 

Instructions

Combine together in a glass (or camping cup) add ice. No ice out in the woods? Just make it ahead of time, refrigerate, and carry it around in your favorite insulated cup.
 
Elevate it further by adding some herbs, berries, or try smoking some wood, rosemary or citrus peels. Hold the smoke over the liquid with a bowl or another cup for 30-60 seconds. Just, if you’re outside, be careful.
