Let's Celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month

Toast to America’s “Native Spirit” all September long with Hudson Whiskey’s Baby Bourbon, the first-ever New York State-produced bourbon. The Exene cocktail can be made three different ways using the same core ingredients, so try one, two. . . or all three!

The Exene - 3 different ways

1 part Aperol aperitif

½ part fresh lemon juice

½ part honey syrup

Half-dropper of Bittermens Elemakule Tiki Bitters (comes in dropper format—2 dashes if decanted into dasher bottle)

DIRECTIONS: add ingredients to shaker with ice, and shake to chill.

Option #1 (center ): shaken with egg white or .75 oz aquafaba (chickpea water), strained into cocktail glass, and garnished with lemon twist

Option #2 (left): strained over ice and topped with soda and garnished with lemon wedge

Option #3 (right): strained over the rocks and garnished with lemon wedge & cherry
