A new feature we’ll be bringing to you is cocktail time! We are sassy ladies who enjoy a good solid drink every now and then. My newest favorite is made with bourbon…
I’m not a big fan of cocktails that taste like they’re only made with liquor, that’s why this one sticks out. The ginger syrup is delicious and adds flavor to the bourbon without overpowering it. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 oz. Makers Mark
- 2 oz. Pellegrino
- 1 Tbsp Ginger simple syrup
- Splash of Lemon juice (fresh is best)
This formula will fill a small glass, if you’re using a full size glass then times all ingredients by 2 except the bourbon, only use 5 oz. Pour all ingredients in a shaker, shake and pour over ice.
Ginger simple syrup is delicious and it’s not just for cocktails. (I put it in my hot tea as well)
An easy recipe for ginger syrup can be found here.
As always, drink responsibly. <3
