I’m taking a break from drinking until the end of the month, but I made this video a couple weeks ago when I was still over-indulging. It’s based on a drink I discovered at my friend’s wedding in June and subsequently enjoyed most for the summer. I’ve since added bubbly and apple cider to make it a fun larger scale harvest punch, but I will have to share that recipe with you another time. For now, this super simple bourbon and ginger could not be easier to make and it goes down dangerously well. I love it as a transitional summer-to-fall cocktail, and I hope you will, too!
Bourbon and Ginger
3 parts bourbon (I like Bulliet)
2 parts ginger ale (I like Fever Tree)
a couple of maraschino cherries (Jack Rudy bourbon cherries would be great, or Luxardo – which is the name I’m trying to think of in the video – would also work)
Fill a glass three quarters with ice, add the ingredients, stir, and enjoy!
