Kentucky is to bourbon as squats are to legs day. They just make sense. It helps that Kentucky is the birthplace of Bourbon, cranking out about 95% of the world's supply, according to the Kentucky Distillers Association.

To amp up the perfect pairing, this cocktail features muddled strawberries, lemon juice, and a dash of simple syrup. Top it with ginger beer for a little fizz, and you've got yourself the ultimate boozy beverage—perfect for any summer cookout.
