Who doesn’t love a warm weather cookout? Whether you’re manning the grill, serving up drinks, or just soaking up the sun, taking things outside makes everything a little more festive and enjoyable. While food may be the focus of your get-together, don’t forget the whiskey, which pairs well with a number of barbecue staples. Here, we cover the steps for making a smoked brisket, batch up a refreshing cocktail, and explore the ways that bourbon enhances a summertime feast.
