Hi everyone!

How’s summer treating you? Bangalore already feels like monsoon 😛

cocktail recipes to try the jeromy diariesToday, I’m here to talk about a few cocktail recipes that can be made using Jim Beam! Jim Beam is a brand of bourbon whiskey produced in Clermont, Kentucky by Beam Suntory.  It is one of the best selling brands of bourbon in the world. Since 1795, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the company that produces the brand, which was given the name “Jim Beam” in 1933 in honor of James B. Beam, who rebuilt the business after Prohibition ended. We learnt four recipes and here’s how to make them 🙂
