Bourbon’s Bad Girl Has a New Book

November 18, 2016 – If you live in Bourbon country, you know the name Joy Perrine.  She’s so respected in Blue Grass country that this year she was inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.

Joy Perrine comes from a colorful background.  Her parents and grandmother were rum runners in Atlantic City during Prohibition. As avid fans of the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire”, the first thing that came to mind was whether they had dealings with Enoch Johnson, the real life character for the Nucky Thompson role.  Turns out they did!
Obviously Joy has had a less colorful career but exciting nonetheless. She is in the news again with the publication of her new book, in collaboration with Susan Reigler, “More Kentucky Bourbon Cocktails” just released by University Press of Kentucky.  This follows their first book published in 2009 “The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book”.

“More Kentucky Bourbon Cocktails” is a great gift idea for anyone who enjoys bourbon or who likes to dabble in the art of mixology.  Besides over 70 cocktail recipes, there’s about a dozen food recipes that feature bourbon.  It’s available on Amazon or through University Press of Kentucky where they are offering a special 20% discount.
