Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! A weekly cocktail recipe inspired by the Packers upcoming opponent. This week the 7-2 Green Bay Packers head to Indy to take on the 6-3 Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday at 4:25pm ET.

After doing some research, I decided the perfect drink for this week would be none other than the Hoosier Heritage. It combines bourbon, maple syrup, and apple cider.

Ingredients for the Hoosier Heritage cocktail

You couldn’t hand-pick a better group of fall flavors! I love a good Old Fashioned, so this was right up my alley when it comes to a nice toasty beverage. It’s warm and fuzzy and something you could drink next to a bonfire on a chilly evening.

While the Indianapolis Colts Hoosier heritage is a little short (since they were the Baltimore Colts until 1984), they have had one of the best quarterbacks of all time on their roster in Peyton Manning. They famously won a Super Bowl with him in 2006 in their 29-17 win over the Chicago Bears. This Chicago Packers fan thanks you for that by the way, Indianapolis! 

Anyways, let’s get down to business! Below you’ll find the supplies and instructions you need to make the Hoosier Heritage!

Hoosier Heritage

Supplies:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Rocks glass
  • Strainer (if your shaker doesn’t have one built in)

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 parts bourbon (or rye)
  • 1 part apple cider
  • ½ part maple syrup
  • ½ part fresh lemon juice
  • 1 sprig of rosemary

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients except rosemary spring into shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well until chilled.
  3. Strain into a rocks glass.
  4. Garnish with sprig of rosemary.

 

Voila! The perfect cocktail to sip on next to a fire while watching the Packers play the Colts on Sunday.

Cheers, Cheeseheads!
