A simple bourbon cocktail: Hillbilly High

By Mike Thayer

It's five-o'clock somewhere right?

20181129_104441This is a go-to adult beverage for me, of my own invention, I call it, the Hillbilly High.  It ain't purdy, it ain't sweet, it ain't lady-like foo-foo, it don't have an umbrella in it.

It's bourbon dammit, with a caffeine kicker. 

The Hillbilly High

Ingredients:

  • 1 shot of your favorite bourbon
  • 1 shot of Mountain Dew (I prefer Diet Mountain Dew, it's not as sweet)
  • 1 shot of water
  • a squeeze of lime juice and a slice to garnish

Serve on the rocks.

What makes it Hillbilly?  Well, the best American Whiskeys (Bourbon is my preference) come from Kentucky and Tennessee, Hillbilly country.  

What makes it "high?"  Mountain Dew, not only was it invented in Hillbilly country (Tennessee, 1940), it brings the caffeine kick!

Enjoy. 

And the recipe is so easy, ask your favorite bartender to whip one up for you.
