This cocktail is something I just kind of whipped together on my own for a nice summer drink. It has a nice light flavor and really reminds me of something that someone would have on a summer day sitting on the porch.
Notes on the ingredients: Bourbon is king in this drink, it doesn’t have to be extremely expensive, but it wouldn’t hurt to have something decent on board. I used Eagle Rare in this one. I enjoyed it.
The Strawberry Syrup here was homemade and you can get the recipe for that right here. Could you use something store bought? Of course, but this version is really good and easy to make so it’s worth trying.
