You know I love simple and sophisticated cocktails. But more importantly, I love cocktails that are fail-proof to create. I don’t always have time to search for unique ingredients. That’s why I prefer to create cocktails that require minimal time with maximum reward.
You-all have recently followed my bourbon journey. I had the opportunity to visit Louisville, Kentucky, last year, and I had a blast at Bourbon & Beyond, as I explored the awesome and fabulous restaurant scene.
After returning from my trip, I started to really enjoy and appreciate bourbon. For years, I was strictly a champagne and vodka drinker. So my friends are still shocked that I now drink bourbon regularly.
One of my favorite bourbons, as of late, is Woodford Reserve Bourbon. The cocktail that I am featuring today is from Woodford’s master distiller, Chris Morris, which debuted in 2018; and is made with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, lemonade, cranberry juice, and a lemon twist for garnish.
This cocktail is perfect for summer. And what I loved most is that I had all the ingredients in my pantry. If you’re doing some summer entertaining, you can also create this cocktail recipe in a large batch, which will be super simple to make!
As always, please make sure to social distance and drink responsibly! Happy summer!
