See the Woktober menu below.
Available at participating locations. Prices vary by location.
There are days when wine and beer just aren’t enough. There are days when only bourbon can save the day. Whether it’s because your food pairing calls for it or because it’s just been one of those weeks—don’t worry we won’t question you—bourbon is essential to any refined palate. Even for those that didn’t know they were ready. So if you’ve never experienced the explosion of warmth that is bourbon whiskey, follow our instructions and proceed with caution!
Ask a hardcore bourbon enthusiast and they’ll tell you a good whiskey should not be tainted with other flavors—water included. But if you’re new to the bourbon streets, you’re probably a little intimidated by the dark, strong and mysterious type. Fortunately, there are lots of great mixers that can make bourbon more approachable for those who’d like something just a tad less strong.
Approachable Cocktails to Try
The trick for any approachable bourbon cocktail is to choose a mixer that plays off of the flavors found in the bourbon itself. Because that can often be tricky, the experts here at Ling & Louie’s have taken the liberty to go ahead and throw some together for you to try:

There just isn’t another season quite as flavor-packed as fall. We all know how excited everyone gets about pumpkin everything (cue the screaming sorority girls) but there are tons of other flavors that are as awesome and in some cases, even more awesome than pumpkin whatever. If you don’t think that’s possible, you’ve probably never tried a bourbon-infused dessert.
Cooking with Bourbon
Aside from desserts and other delicious fall treats, bourbon makes a heck of a special guest in almost any dish when paired properly. Its woody and sometimes even vanilla-like flavors, can bring out the best in dishes whether they’re sweet or savory.
If you’re cooking with bourbon for the first time, remember you don’t need to go out and find an expensive bottle to get the most out of your dish. Since the cooking process will change the complexities of the bourbon, it’s best to go with an affordable but tasty bourbon like Jim Beam.
Fall Dishes with Apples
While apples are obviously great for baking desserts, they’re often overlooked for their amazing cooking qualities. One of the best things about cooking with apples is the wide variety you have to work with. There are many different varieties of sweet, tart, soft and firm apples that may be fit for some dishes more than others.
In general, apples will break down the same with the right amount of cooking, but softer apples make for better sauces to give your fall dishes (and desserts!) the perfect fall touch.
Like Bourbon and Apples? Try These!
If bourbon everything is your style, Ling & Louie’s Bourbon-Glazed Pork Sliders are a must. This Ling & Louie’s original puts a fall twist on a Southern original that’ll make you thankful you’re taking a break from your Pumpkin Spice Latte diet. Each slider comes loaded with bourbon-glazed pork tenderloin and topped with apple slaw and wasabi honey mustard—and let’s not forget the crispy garlic fry funnel that comes with each order!
Reeeeally like bourbon AND apples? We hope you saved room for dessert because there’s no way you can call yourself a bourbon aficionado without trying Ling & Louie’s Bourbon-Maple Crème Brulee topped with poached apples. But these are no ordinary apples (if they were they might be for boring people and we can’t stand for that), these apples are prepared with bourbon! Talk about patriotic.
