HOME ON THE RANGE TO SPRUCE UP THE NEXT COCKTAIL PARTY
Here is a cocktail to transport you to the home on the range that you’ve been dreaming of since childhood. Or the home on the range that you actually inhabited as a child. To quote some new age mumbo jumbo, you’ve got to visualise what you want most into being. Put on your favourite old Stetson thinking hat, and visualise the deer and the antelope roaming on the range.
Alternately, you could have a cowboy-themed cocktail party and reminisce about the range with your friends.
- 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
- ¼ oz. of Sweet Vermouth
- ¼ oz. of Vermouth
- 2 oz. Bourbon
- Twist of Lemon
- Twist of Orange
- Cobbled Ice
Fill the glasses with cobbled ice. Add the bitters and the sweet vermouth. Finally, add the bourbon. Garnish with the twists of lemon and orange.
And it’s ready to serve!
It’s better to serve these in single servings rather than in a pitcher or punch bowl, as the ice would melt and somewhat dilute the punch that your own Home on the Range cocktail is meant to pack. Enjoy your drink. There seldom will be heard, a discouraging word, and I promise you this: the skies won’t turn cloudy as long you keep sipping! I have a notion that you are all going to have a home on the range soon, each one of you. And kick back and relax with this terrific bourbon cocktail.
