Last weeks #TipsyTuesday selection was mighty good. I'm pretty sure I lived off of Moscow Mules over the weekend. I mean, we ran out of vodka. We didn't realize it until after the 9 o'clock hour and of course the liquor store was closed. Luckily we had a bottle of bourbon in the kitchen and that's what inspired this weeks selections.

When your at home stock gets low here are a few cocktails that taste just as great as the original with a few substitutions. The Kentucky Mule, Manhattan, and Negroni all have substations worth making permanent.
