Grave Digger

cocktail glass with bourbon cocktail

The Grave Digger is an excellent Bourbon based winter cocktail when it is cold outside and warm inside. This version of the Grave Digger uses Bourbon as the base spirit and red wine as the secondary alcohol.  We have mixed up slight variations of this using Rye in place of Bourbon and even hard cider in place of the red wine. Have fun, mix and match the ingredients but most importantly, enjoy the cocktail and stay warm. Find the recipe here.

The Colonial Gimlet

Colonial Gimlet, bottle of rum, cocktail glass and handwritten recipe on a table

Start the weekend off right with a Colonial Gimlet. My grandmother wrote this recipe down for my grandfather in the 1980s. As a result, I’m certain he took this hint and made that exact cocktail for her. The note has survived time and recently made its way to us here at Fancy A Drink and we now bring you both the photograph and recipe. The recipe can be found here and we hope you enjoy it. We will be making our Colonial Gimlet with BUMBU (The Original) Rum.
