Kentucky Buck

The Kentucky Buck was created in 2009 by bartender Erick Castro for Rickhouse in San Francisco, and it immediately became a modern classic. Its combination of strawberry, lemon, bourbon, ginger beer, and bitters manages to pack a punch while still being soft and enjoyable. It's a definite crowd-pleaser, and because the zing of ginger beer tends to work well in non-alcoholic cocktails, this drink works surprisingly well as a mocktail.

This mocktail recipe requires you to gather a few ingredients, but it's worth it. To make our non-alcoholic Kentucky Buck you'll need a non-alcoholic whiskey—we like the oaky-kiss of Kentucky 74 for this cocktail—plus our Aromatic bitters, ginger beer, fresh strawberries, and lemon juice.
