The Rebel Yell is the perfect cold-weather cocktail. Made with simple ingredients of bourbon, bitters, and lemon juice it’s as simple to make as it is delicious!
Fall and football ….and bourbon! They all go together. I named this little bourbon drink The Rebel Yell because it reminds me of The Grove on game day! One tip for any good cocktail, use the good stuff! Don’t go buying any cheap bourbon and think your drink will taste good.
When you’re in the mood for a hard liquor cocktail, this is the one for you! Bourbon with a splash of lemon pairs beautifully together.
