START EVERYTHING WITH A FULL HEART AND A FULL GLASS

Full hearts... Elisa and I have them. Full glass...we turned to an expert, Joe Brooke. 

Joe is a master bartender and all-around fabulous guy who's kind of a big deal in the cocktail world... most recently making the signature cocktails for the Governor's Ball at the Academy Awards. Google him and see what I mean.  

We tasted several drinks (it was tough) with Joe, as he educated us on flavor profiles and glassware. Suitable for any party this cocktail is the the perfect combination of lightness, brightness and a bit of ol' Kentucky kick. Cheers!

Part of Joe's vintage collection. A bottle of Old Forester from 1952
