Wild Turkey is excellent on its own or in a cocktail such as a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned. With the robust, in-your-face flavor that is unmistakably Wild Turkey, it can stand up to any mixer or in any cocktail. Because it's distilled at a lower proof, there's less water added, resulting in a deeper, more robust bourbon flavor.
