As Kendall mentioned earlier this week, we’ve been getting great weather here in San Francisco. 70 and sunny with pretty blue skies; all you want to do is be outside. It’s the type of weather that has you staring out your window at work, daydreaming of picnics, bike rides, and beaches (I’ve caught myself several times). The type of weather that makes you want to just hang out on the porch, drinking a refreshing beverage. Well, we actually don’t have a porch, but slowly sipping on this cocktail made life just as good.
The Porch Sipper
1 ½ oz Wild Turkey American Honey
1 oz Wild Turkey 101
¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
Splash of Soda
Combine all ingredients in a rocks glass or half pint Mason jar (as photographed) full of ice, and give it a quick stir. Garnish with lemon wedge and mint sprig.
I love how easy this cocktail is to make (and drink). Wild Turkey American Honey, the bourbon-based honey liqueur, adds the perfect amount of sweetness to a cocktail, and saves you the trouble of making syrup.
American Honey is sweet, smooth, and absolutely delicious. My mother, who is in NO way a fan of bourbon (or any other spirit) drinks it straight. Bottle to glass. No ice. For me, it’s too sweet to drink straight, but I love mixing it with bourbon, unsweetened iced tea, or lemon juice and water. It's the perfect liqueur to spice up your summer—pick up a bottle and give it a try!
