Craft Cocktail: The Rock

What has a sweet Eagle base with equal parts black and gold and a splash of bitter? Not the Nasty Bunch – it’s Jack Wolfe’s latest Southern Miss-themed concoction. Eagle Rare Bourbon (every bottle of which is aged no less than a decade) meets its match with the housemade Black Bean vanilla and Golden Twist (we hear the twist is citrus) honey syrups. Finished with a few dashes of bitters and basil for aromatics (and an ice cube as big as its namesake), this cocktail is the perfect addition to your game-day roster.
