Rebel Yell Cocktail

Rebel Yell

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.

I can’t get enough cocktails. If you are looking for more cocktail recipes, check out my recipes here.

It’s perfect for evening sipping. As well, guys will love this bourbon drink, especially during cooler weather. It’s a twist on a traditional Old Fashioned cocktail.
