June 14 is National Bourbon Day; it also happens to be Bill Samuels, Jr.’s birthday. Talk about a perfect pairing. As creator of Maker’s Mark 46®, the Manhattan is Bill’s cocktail of choice – and we’re sharing his recipe with you. Have a Manhattan in hand when you’re cooking or grilling with our Spiceology x Maker’s 46 spice flight – or when you’re cheersing with the family around the table.
