Not the type for fancy frou-frou cocktails? It doesn’t get much easier than the Kentucky B&B.  Pour 3 parts bourbon into a brandy snifter, and add 1 part Benedictine. Give it a quick stir or swirl to combine, then sip away.

As a note, personal tastes vary, and every whiskey drinker has a different favorite. Use your favorite bourbon, regardless of brand. Keep in mind, though, that with no mixer to mellow it out, it’s probably not the best time to skimp on your whiskey.
