Each week, Mike Augustyniak finds a new cocktail from a local mixologist. This week, he heads to the J. Carver Distillery in Waconia to check out their bourbon specialty.


1 ½ oz Brickyard Straight Bourbon

1 oz house made cherry sweet vermouth (substitute high quality sweet vermouth)

1 oz house made Italian Liqueur (substitute an Italian Liqueur like Campari)


Add all ingredients into a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until combined and chilled. Strain into a cocktail coupe and garnish with an orange peel. Flame the orange peel for a little extra flair.

J. Carver Distillery has been distilling craft spirits from all-Minnesota grown grain since late 2014.  The distillery and cocktail room is open for public tours on Fridays and Saturday, and by appointment.
