Seasonal Sips

Consider the sweet ritual of bourbon and storytelling on the porch this fall

In my home state of Kentucky, we take our bourbon seriously. After all, we invented it. New Orleanians have appreciated Kentucky’s native spirit since the 1800s, when it was shipped down downriver on flatboats. Growing up, many nights were spent watching my dad sipping the smooth, sweet spirit, while — more often than not — spinning spirited tales. The ritual was passed down generation-to-generation. My husband and I have carried on that tradition here at our home in Uptown where, especially in the fall, we retire to the porch after work and enjoy a pull of bourbon as we review the activities of our day, and yes, tell stories. We frequently reach for the bottle of Elijah Craig. Craig is said to have been one of those distillers sending his whiskey down the river from Kentucky to New Orleans in the late 1800s. While I’m quick to embrace new things, it’s good to know some things don’t change. Cheers!
