Apocalypse Bourbon Cocktail is an easy and delicious bourbon cocktail recipe that everyone loves!

Fall, football, and bourbon all go together so wonderfully. Use good bourbon and it’ll be smooth. Bourbon has a complex flavor profile. Even if you’re not a bourbon drinker, you’ll like this simple drink.

Bourbon has a rich and robust flavor, therefore, any drink you have will inevitably have that strong flavor. Bourbon is most often associated with colder months. But, can be enjoyed all year. I made Fizzy Bourbon Lemonade and Raspberry Peach Bourbon Smash just for the warm weather months!

When a fancy-sounding cocktail is also easy to make you have a win-win situation! And this one is insanely easy to make. You need four simple ingredients, ice, and a glass.

You can shake this in a cocktail shaker or you can add the ingredients to your glass and stir. Easy peasy!


Whatever suits your taste and budget. I prefer smooth bourbons and recommend choosing a good quality bourbon such as Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, or Buffalo Trace.

If you love a bourbon cocktail, this Apocalypse Cocktail is sure to become a new favorite.
