My best advice about cocktails is to view the classics not as a recipe, but as a formula. This is especially true of my favorite cocktail: the Old Fashioned. The formula for this classic is easily explained by the title of Derek Brown’s book, Spirits, Sugar, Water, Bitters (excellent book for history and cocktail recipes!). I am always looking to craft twists on this evergreen classic and with summer almost here, I want to create a s’mores bourbon drink. Call it kismet, but fellow Bourbon & Banter contributor Matt Evans also had the same idea, and thus, the Kentucky Campfire was born!
