With spring comes the return of patio weather — and the need for bourbon cocktails that fuel your outdoor adventures.
1.25 ounces Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon
.75 ounce amaro
Sparkling water (such as Topo Chico)
Add Rebel Yell bourbon and amaro to a highball glass filled with ice. Top with sparkling water. Give a quick stir and garnish with orange peel.
Optional: For a bourbon amaro spritz, add diced strawberries and top with half sparkling water and half sparkling wine. This can also be served as a punch.
1.5 ounces Rebel Yell Small Batch Rye
.5 ounce elderflower liqueur
1 ounce lemonade
Sprigs of mint
Add Rebel Yell rye, elderflower liqueur, lemonade, and a few mint leaves to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled, then strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Top with sparkling water. Garnish with mint sprig and lemon wheel.
For a sweeter cocktail, add a bit more elderflower liqueur.
1.5 ounces Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Bar spoon of maraschino cherry liqueur (optional)
Peach slice (optional)
