We love the combination of bourbon and blackberries, and when a surplus of blackberries from a brunch found their way into our possession, it was only a matter of time before they ended up in a drink. The Rambler is pleasantly tart and refreshing, the blackberries and lemon juice giving a tart bite. Fresh squeezed orange juice adds a bit of sweetness that helped compliment the oak and vanilla notes of the bourbon.

  1. Hmmm… Whiskey and I have a history… and we’re not really on speaking terms anymore! I know Bourbon’s not exactly whiskey, but they’re similar, right? Do you think the other flavors would make me forget our troubled past?

    1. Well technically Bourbon is a type of whiskey. Of course we try to find a way to make our drinks balanced so you get a bit of all the flavors, but if you were to dial the amount of bourbon down to say 1.5oz you would get a drink that is more fruity than boozy!
