The Man o’ War cocktail is a classic bourbon-based drink perfect for sipping at Kentucky Derby parties. The cocktail is believed to have been invented in the mid-20th century, and it features a mix of bourbon, orange liqueur, sweet vermouth, and lemon juice.
Use fresh lemon juice for this cocktail, as it brightens up the drink and balances out the liqueur's sweetness. This classic cocktail was created by Allen Katz, the co-founder of the New York Distilling Company and an expert in all things spirits and cocktails.
Loaded with bourbon and garnished with a lemon peel, this bourbon-based beverage will take your taste buds on a wild ride and is the perfect addition to any Kentucky Derby viewing party.
