Author: Heather Wibbels
Heather Wibbels is an award-winning mixologist, chair of the Bourbon Women Board of Directors, photographer, and digital content creator. Wibbels works with brands and companies to develop cocktails and deliver cocktail education for both the home mixologist and cocktail enthusiast, turning cocktail lovers into whiskey drinkers one drink at a time.
Bourbon Is My Comfort Food reveals the delicious beauty of bourbon cocktails and the joy of creating them. Whether readers are new to bourbon or steeped in its history and myriad uses, they will gain the knowledge to make great bourbon cocktails, share them with friends and family, and expand their whiskey horizons—because the only thing better than bourbon is sharing it with a friend.
From building your home bar to basics on cocktail technique, Heather Wibbels showcases classic bourbon cocktails—like the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan, Whiskey Sours, Highballs, Juleps and more—in approachable ways. The book also features several Cocktail Labs, which invite readers to explore classic cocktail elements and experiment with flavors, textures, infusions, syrups, and garnishes. With over 140 recipes, this book is more than a cocktail recipe book—it’s a primer on manipulating flavors and balance in whiskey cocktails.
But more than that, Bourbon Is My Comfort Food is a celebration of ten years of bourbon education and cocktails by Bourbon Women, the first group dedicated to women and their love of the spirit. Wibbels celebrates with cocktails from the Bourbon Women leadership team, branches across the nation, and winners from the group’s annual Not Your Pink Drink contest. Get out your cocktail shaker and explore the wide world of bourbon cocktails with Heather Wibbels and Bourbon Women!
