The Country Life

The Country Life

We tend to find inspiration...pretty much anywhere...when it comes to drink making. This one comes from Mark Twain's famous and controversial novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. (Email us at and we'll tell you why). So without further ado, here we have the Country Life bottled cocktail. This recipe makes six cocktails. 


  • 6 oz. water

  • 14 dashes of orange bitters

  • 5 oz. sweet port

  • 5 oz. aged Jamaican rum

  • 11 oz. Evan Williams Bourbon


Bottled cocktails are great for tailgating. No mess, easy to transport, and they look great. The average wine bottle is 750ml which roughly translates to 27 ounces of liquid inside. Hence our bottled cocktail recipes all add up to 27 ounces. #pro


  1. Find an empty wine bottle.

  2. Get a funnel.

  3. Pour all of the ingredients into the bottle through the funnel.

  4. Cap bottle and place in the fridge overnight.

  5. Serve away. (We like ours in a coupe cocktail glass with an orange peel).
