Yeah, you read that right! Honey+Bourbon+Lemon=a southern sunset on a porch swing! Ok, I haven’t actually spent time in The South (unless you count SoCal!) but this is how I would imagine it! I love bourbon, obviously, and I LOVE honey. Especially this spun raw honey that I’ve been getting lately. I could just eat it with a spoon (I may or may not just eat it with a spoon), it has a kind of grit to it. Man… I think I should get a spoonful right now! Better yet, I’ll settle for this here cocktail!
You will need the following:
- 3 oz. bourbon, I used Maker’s Mark (duh, it’s totally my fav and if you follow me, you know this!)
- The juice of two lemons
- 2 heaping tablespoons of honey
- lemon seltzer water
- In a cocktail shaker, mix the lemon juice and honey until the honey is completely dissolved. Add the bourbon and mix well.
- Pour evenly over two ice filled glasses and top off with the seltzer water. Garnish with a slice of lemon and enjoy! I know I did!
Swearing Mom out.
