Grave Digger Recipe - Fancy a Drink - Bourbon Rye Whiskey

Grave Digger

The Grave Digger recipe makes 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.
