Drink of The Week: Bourbon Cocktail
Mmmm. Bourbon makes me think of the Kentucky Derby. It’s a great time if you’ve ever been. Think about incorporating bourbon into your signature cocktail. If you don’t know what bourbon tastes like, try a night out on the town to get a little aquainted. Go on. I dare you
The Bourbon Cocktail
- 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
- 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 ounce Bénédictine D.O.M.
- 1/4 ounce Cointreau
- Angostura bitters
- Lemon twist, for garnish
- Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
- Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, Bénédictine, and Cointreau in a cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass, top with a dash of bitters, and garnish with the lemon twist.
