Learn how to make the perfect Sunday brunch tipple with Jamey Merkel, Beam Suntory Brand Educator. Merkel transforms the classic cocktail, Flip, into a savoury drink with Knob Creek’s range of award-winning small batch bourbons. Using a combination of Knob Creek Smoked Maple and Knob Creek Straight Rye Whiskey (a spicy spirit), the Bacon Maple Flip captures the aromas of an American breakfast in a glass. Shake this up as a morning-after cocktail or aperitif.
