Ingredient of the Year

Chews and News is launching a new series, Ingredient of the Year, featuring bourbon in its inaugural year. Every month, a new recipe will be shared that highlights bourbon, while also giving readers a glimpse into the rich history of the cocktail.

In short, bourbon tells stories.
