Bourbon, Barrels and Bluebird of Happiness

Guests joined us for a virtual tour of New Riff Distillery in Northern Kentucky, a scavenger hunt (with prizes!) and shake up cocktails that demonstrated how fun and optimism are needed now more than ever, even if we can’t be together in person!

We discovered the color changing properties of some of New Riff’s Holli Patterson’s favorite cocktail ingredients, unexpected garnishes and how glassware choices can take a drink to a whole new level!

Of course, Holli made bourbon cocktail for the Whisky Chicks and Delta Zeta alumnae, but everyone also met New Riff’s award-winning Bourbon Barrel Aged Gin! And we were glad we did.

As an added bonus, guests had the option to join along with cocktails and dine together from afar. Everyone received a specialty New Riff glass, and Linda Ruffenach, Whisky Chicks Founder, shared two delicious recipes:

-Brie with Dried Apples, Cranberries, Pecans & Bourbon Caramel Sauce

-Flourless Chocolate Brownies with Bourbon Sea Salt & Bourbon Smoked Sugar
