This is the first of multiple episodes coming out of Southern Whiskey Society Batch 2. Joining us on this episode are Chris Thomas, Suzie Q from Buffalo Trace, and our buddy Tim Gunderman.
More shows to come, but this is a great taste of early in the evening.
First, Will and the Greeze talk about endless shrimp coming in the next few months. Then Greeze brings over some alleged Elmer T. Lee at Barrel Strength, but it was in a mason jar and Will doesn't necessarily believe him. Then they try a blind sample from Brandon Rice, and Will sort of guesses it. Then, after the 15, Will and the Greeze drink some 2017 Birthday Bourbon for in honor of his daughter's birthday.

This edition of Barn Night we decided to do a cocktail competition, with each cocktail needing an element of creativity added. But before we get to that, we hold a kangaroo court to serve justice on Greeze. He betrayed Joe Bourbon's trust by opening the beaver bourbon at the studio without Joe B. being present.
After sentencing, the cocktail competition beings. Below are the recipes if you would like to make them at home.
Joe's: Muddled mint, 4 oz Whiskey of your choice (Joe used Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond), 1 squirt of Nellie and Joe’s key lime juice, a splash of sweet tea, Goya Jamaican Style Ginger beer, to taste.
Will's: 6 oz Peach Mint simple syrup (2 diced peaches, 1 bunch fresh mint leaves, 1 cup white sugar, just shy of 1 cup of water -- boil peaches, water and sugar until sugar fully dissolved. Stir in mint and let steep until cool), 5 oz bourbon (Will used Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond), 4 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice, 8oz water.
Chris's: 1.5oz Weller Antique, 1/2oz dry orange curaçao, fresh mint. Stir everything over ice for 20 seconds then strain into a rocks glass. Splash with an ounce of Ale-8 and squeeze a wedge of orange into the drink.
Greeze: 3/4 OLD GREEZY BATCH ONE, 1/4 luxardo cherry jam. “Garnish” with ginger ale, KY Ale 8 stuff, Monster energy drink white can, or Coke
First, Will and the Greeze get in a passionate discussion about Kentucky Owl Batches 1 & 2... and drink both on a fresh crack. That takes up the entire first half the show. Then, after the 15, they drink Russell's Reserve Single Barrel. The rest is in the details.
