In honor of the American spirit of bourbon, I raise my glass and share with you the Kentucky 95 cocktail a twist on the classic French 75.
Recipe from Bobby Flay

3/4-ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2-ounce fresh orange juice
3/4-ounce Simple Syrup
Champagne or other dry sparkling wine, chilled
Lemon twist, for serving
Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, orange juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with 6 ice cubes. Shake for 10 seconds before straining into a wineglass and topping with champagne and a lemon twist.
