Although weather-wise fall hasn’t hit San Diego yet, the inspirations are definitely in the air. Fall is a great time for craft cocktails, and seeing as it’s National Bourbon Heritage month, I thought I’d bring you a cozy, seasonal bourbon cocktail.
Four Roses Bourbon was the perfect place to start with its fruity undertones. I paired it with fresh California oranges from my CSA box, mint from my garden, and some gorgeous late season blackberries. By finishing the whole thing with some bubbly soda water, its refreshing enough to drink on these hot, indian summer days.
Raise your hand if you love fall craft cocktails as well! Who’s got a great bourbon cocktail recipe they’d love to share? Leave a comment and let me know.
