Apparently Friday has just become “Cocktail Day”. I think it’s just the day that I’m most inspired to learn to make a new cocktail. It’s also the day that we usually have friends over, who want to try new cocktails. It all evens out in the end.
Today’s cocktail is brought to you by the fact that I didn’t have the gin to make the drink I really wanted to try my hand at.
3/8 oz Benedictine
1 1/2 oz Bourbon
3/4 oz lemon juice
1 barspoon powdered sugar
This came out very interestingly. It was Alex’s idea, because I hate both Bourbon and herbal liqueurs and never would have tried to make it myself. To be honest, I didn’t totally hate it. I love citrus heavy cocktails and this just hit it right on the nose between being something I could really enjoy and something I can’t bring myself to drink. Alex on the other hand is totally infatuated with it, so if you like Bourbon and Benedictine then you should definitely give this drink a shot.
Lots of Love,
