There are a lot of people who proclaim “I don’t drink bourbon”, “It’s too strong”, or give you a stare like you’ve asked them to sip on motor oil. What the hell is this? We’re American. Well at least I am; if you’re not carry on, no offense intended!
In all fairness taste is subjective but I believe that you can always find the right drink with any given base spirit for every palette. The desire to sneak a few bourbon cocktails into my friends inspired this drink! 😉
In a shaker combine:
- 2 oz Woodford Double Oak
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 0.75oz home made pineapple syrup
- 0.5 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
- 2 dashes Scrappy’s Cardamon Bitters
- 2 dashes Mister Bitters Honey Apricot Smoked Hickory bitters
Add ice, shake, then strain over ice into a tall glass. Garnish with a piece of pineapple and a cherry!
My girlfriends love this because it’s Very Approachable for a bourbon cocktail!
