Hey, y’all! A Bourbon and Ale-8 Cocktail. There are few things more Kentucky than that! It’s my pleasure to introduce you to my newest cocktail recipe, one that I am calling “The Kentucky Grandee”. Grandee refers to a person of high rank or eminence. That, to me, is embodied by Kentuckians. My people.

Thank you to Ale-8-One for partnering with me on this post, along with y’all for supporting those that make JCP Eats possible. All opinions are my own. Originally published August 2020, Updated September 2021.

About Ale-8-One

Launched in July of 1926, Ale-8-One is the only Kentucky-invented soft drink still in existence. It was invented by G. L. Wainscott and was named via one of America’s first slogan contests at the Clark County Fair. “A Late One” – the winning entry – was a pun adopted for its witty description. From that, a Kentucky legacy transpired.

You can purchase Ale-8 in many locations across Kentucky, including Kroger. Can’t find it? Don’t worry! You can shop Ale-8-One here.

Fun Bourbon Fact:

Did you know that there are more bourbon barrels than people in the Commonwealth of Kentucky? And you wonder why I choose to reside in “My Old Kentucky Home”….

My best,
