We’re going mile-high with this locally-sourced whiskey-based celebration for the Super Bowl bound Denver Bronocs. There’s greenery in the drink to acknowledge Colorado’s recent legalization of marijuana. While this might tempt some, we recommend sticking with the suggested dill. A good bourbon can be used if Tin Cup whiskey can’t be found.
