Now that Labor Day is over, we can focus on celebrating all the other happenings in September, including National Bourbon Month.

For the entire month of September, we can kick back and sip this classic American treat. For those who love Bourbon, and even those who don’t, Micaela Piccolo of Distilled unveils an unexpected pairing of Bourbon with the Italian Classic liqueur, Frangelico. This mix of sweet and Smokey is the perfect treat as we transition to Fall. Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur that pairs perfectly with the rustic bourbon flavor is the perfect addition to any Fall cocktail and can make even the most unassuming bourbon drinker – a bourbon believer!
