More cocktail upgrades....

Yesterday, we wrote about Bearings, a Southern lifestyle guide for men. Well, Bearings has a sister!

Manner and Lane is a Southern lifestyle guide for women and just like their big brother, Bearings, has offered us up some more creative tailgate cocktails.

Athens, Georgia: The Branded Butcher
White Julep

2.5 oz American Spirit White Whiskey
2 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
1 Large Sprig of Mint
Splash of Water

Place whiskey, mint and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Lightly muddle the ingredients together until well blended. Add a splash of water and ice. Shake briskly and serve in a julep tin garnished with a mint sprig.

Austin, Texas: The Tigress
Brown Sugar Snow

1 oz Rye Whiskey
1 oz Averna Amaro
½ oz Brown Sugar Syrup or Muddled Brown Sugar Cube
½ oz Lemon Juice

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a coupe.

Enjoy Manner and Lane with your spirits!
