The Bardstown Sling was created by renowned bar professional and master mixologist, Tony Abou-Ganim, to show off the unique flavor profile of Maker’s Mark® Bourbon. Abou-Ganim likens his bourbon creation’s flavor to that of ripe peaches, making it a superb cocktail to enjoy on summer evenings with friends.


  • 2 oz. Kentucky bourbon
  • 1 oz. Peach brandy
  • 1 oz. Peach puree
  • 2 oz. Fresh lemon sour*
  • 2-3 Dashes peach bitters
  • Ground nutmeg for garnish


In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, pour the bourbon, peach brandy, peach puree and fresh lemon sour, and add a few dashes of bitters. Shake until well blended, then strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg and enjoy!

*To make the fresh lemon sour, mix 2 parts freshly squeezed lemon juice with 1 part simple syrup.
