Bottle & Bond (Bardstown)
One of Bourbon Country’s newest distilleries, Bardstown Bourbon Company, has a brand-new restaurant - Bottle & Bond - that is serving a full menu of holiday cocktails this season. The Sandy Claus, Noggerdoodle and You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out are just some of the popular options. For those parents hoping for some “elf” inspiration, we recommend ordering an Elf on the Shelf made with Dixie Vodka, Matcha Tea Syrup, Green Chartreuse, Creme de Menthe and Laphroaig.
Bourbon’s Bistro (Louisville)

Ramsi’s Café On The World (Louisville)
More of a traditional holiday type of person, without all the frills? Go with Ramsi’s Holiday Orange Spice Old Fashioned. Adding citrus and spice to an Old Fashioned is as classic as garland and poinsettia on a mantle. Buffalo Trace Bourbon, orange & spice, raw sugar and orange bitters.
