Have you ever heard of a Wooden Nickle? If not, you’re in luck! Brennen Lockhart, bar manager for Wiseguy Lounge, joined Brett Holverson from Heaven Hill Brands and Global Brand Ambassador Bernie Lubbers to craft this smoky cocktail.
This drink is perfect for summer, as it includes fresh muddled blueberries. Lockhart said the drink has a velvety texture to it.
Larceny Bourbon was launched in 2012 and it’s a small batch version of Old Fitzgerald. Lubbers told us the entire history of why the bourbon is called Larceny!
Here is the recipe for a Wooden Nickle:
Lemon Juice .25 oz
Blue Agave Maple .75
Larceny Bourbon 2 oz
Saline 1 dash
Allspice 1 dash
