The weather is bringing a chill to the air, so it’s time to shed the crisp, light cocktails of summer and don more autumn-like libations. How about a Breckenridge Burro?

“Besides our unique high-rye mash bill we owe our success to careful mingling of casks at each bottling and the perfect Breckenridge snowmelt water used for proofing. The natural minerality of our water source ensures the luscious mouth-feel, depth of flavor, and long finish making Breck Bourbon one of the very best Whiskeys in the World.”
