Drink of The Week: Bourbon Cocktail

May 30, 2011 No Comments by Nicole

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 :)
