@jojolocal caught my attention about bourbon and hot apple cider. Done. I thought I had everything I needed to make it, but once I started digging around in my cabinets, I realized bourbon was pretty much the only ingredient I had. So, B and I did not have hot bourbon apple cider as planned, but we did have hot bourbon Turkish apple tea. It was pretty good! I'm still hoping the weather is such that we can journey out for the ingredients to make it properly tomorrow, but this wasn't a bad substitute.
Pope House Bourbon Lounge. Kentucky was clearly the theme of the weekend and Pope House fit perfectly.
Unfortunately, their website isn't updated, so I can't recall the exact drinks we ordered, but all were bourbon based and all were delicious.
The Mapple (the only drink name I remember)- Hot Apple Cider, bourbon,
Maple whipped cream and an apple
that bakes in the drink
For dinner we had their Country Fritters (fried puffs of cornbread, ham, and cheese served with grainy mustard), a basket of fries and we shared a Louisville Hot Brown (open faced Texas toast with herb-roasted turkey, parmesan mornay sauce, topped with tomato and sliced bacon). It was all fantastic! The only other Hot Brown I've ever eaten was prepared by B's mom, so they had a high bar to live up to. I like the way she does her tomatoes better, but this one was certainly delicious as well.
