To celebrate the beginning of fall we are working with Cavalry Bourbon Whiskey to create this delicious variation on the classic Kentucky Buck cocktail. The Cavalry Salute is still as close as possible to the classic, as we couldn’t mess with it too much, but to bring this cocktail from summer to fall we simply replaced the simple syrup with maple syrup and the herbal aromatic bitters you would usually use with the softer orange bitters.


  • 1.5 ounces Cavalry Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1 ounce maple syrup
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 strawberries
  • Lemon and strawberry for garnish


  • Muddle ½ a lemon and a whole strawberry in a shaker
  • Add Cavaley Bourbon Whiskey and simple syrup
  • Shake hard to combine and chill ingredients
  • Strain into Collins glass over fresh ice
  • Top with ginger beer and stir to mix
  • Garnish with fresh lemon and strawberry
