Rebel Yell Bourbon Joins Forces with Sugarfire Smoke House

Looking to do something special for dad this Father’s Day? Here’s a ‘surefire’ idea!

Join us for the ultimate bourbon and barbeque feast – where Rebel Yell Bourbon is teaming up with award-winning Sugarfire Smoke House to provide you with a unique take on American classics. Consider yourself indulged!

Starting on Wednesday, June 14, National Bourbon Day, and continuing through Father’s Day, on Sunday, June 18, Sugarfire will feature special bourbon-inspired menu items at their six locations across the St. Louis region, including Downtown, Olivette, Wingshaven, St. Charles, Valley Park, and Washington.

Boozy options range from main course Rebel Yell Bourbon Short Ribs to New Fashioned and ‘Tucky Sage cocktails to even a Bacon Bourbon Shake for dessert.

Known for its defiantly smooth wheated flavor and honey overtones, Rebel Yell Bourbon is the perfect whiskey to kick barbeque up a notch. And partnering with Sugarfire is our way of satiating the masses – the growing number of bourbon-drinking enthusiasts – while also supporting a locally owned St. Louis business.

Not in St. Louis to enjoy Sugarfire’s mouth-watering creations? That doesn’t mean you have to miss out.

Try your hand at making one of these recipes for dad … or other deserving rebels this weekend!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c beef stock
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
1/4 c Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon
1/3 c Worcestershire
1/2 c brown sugar
1/8 c pickled jalapeño juice
1/3 c light corn syrup
1 c peach purée
1 1/2 c ketchup
1/4 c tomato paste
5 lb bone-in beef short ribs, cut crosswise in to 2' pieces
3 T all-purpose flour
3 T vegetable oil
3 medium onions, diced
3 medium carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 head of garlic, halved crosswise
Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 275°F. Combine stock, vinegar, Rebel Yell Bourbon, Worcestershire, brown sugar, jalapeño juice, corn syrup, peach puree, ketchup, and tomato paste in a medium stock pot on low heat. Season ribs well on all sides. Lightly dust each short rib with flour, knocking off any excess. Heat a large pan on high. Add vegetable oil to pan and sear ribs for 6 minutes on all sides. Remove ribs and place in a roasting dish. Using the same pan on medium high heat, sauté vegetables until softened. Add vegetables, bay leaves, garlic and enough of the sauce to cover 2/3 of the ribs. Wrap ribs tightly with aluminum foil and place on a center rack in the oven. Continue to reduce remaining sauce until desired thickness, stirring occasionally. Roast ribs covered for 3 hours. Allow to rest and serve with sauce.

Ingredients:

1.5 oz Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon
1 sugar packet
1 dash blood orange bitters
1 smoked lemon peel

Method:

Muddle Rebel Yell Bourbon, sugar and bitters in glass. Add bourbon and ice, and stir. Garnish with lemon peel and/or a sprinkle of smoked maple sea salt.

Ingredients:

2 oz Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon
0.5 oz sage simple syrup*
1 oz lime juice
1 oz ginger beer
Fresh sage

Method:

Combine all ingredients, including sage, in a shaker filled with ice, and shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with more sage.

*To make sage simple syrup, boil sugar, water and sage leaves. Let simmer on low for 30 minutes, then let cool and strain. The simple syrup has a shelf life of two weeks. You can also use honey instead of sage.

Ingredients:

2 oz Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon*
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 T caramel drizzle

Whipped cream
Peppered bacon
