3 cocktails by Bird Dog Whiskey that are perfect for anglers looking to drink before noon….
As you may know I am a sucker for branding. On my last liquor run I ended up with a sample pack of flavored whiskey by Bird Dog purchased solely for the package design. I went deeper down this rabbit hole when I started looking at the recommended cocktail recipes. I figured, if I was going to stray this far from the path I might as well go all the way. I removed the garnishes and substituted a few ingredients but it turns out these are pretty amazing! Therefore, I deem the following recipes the Creekside Summer Cocktails of choice for 2016. Perfect for anglers looking to drink before noon or just drink campside while maintaining the ability to rise before the fish. Enjoy!
