Bourbon Sweetheart Cocktail
Since lots of stuff on Valentine’s Day ends up being pink, we wanted to make a drink that would be a little different. Since some guys might shy away from a pink drink we wanted a drink that either sex would feel comfortable sipping. Making a nice bourbon drink keeps it manly while our use of strawberries keeps it elegant. I mean, bourbon and strawberries!
Combining bourbon and strawberries, this drink has a great balance between the sweet and tart of the fresh strawberries while the bourbon gives it enough of a boozy punch to make this drink perfect for a bourbon lover. A dash of bitters brings a hint of spice and complexity to the Bourbon Sweetheart, making this drink come to life.
Plus it is a great way to use those left over strawberries you didn’t happen to dip in chocolate while preparing for your hot date! Or try a spicy cocktail with our Spicy Pineapple Strawberry Moscow Mule!
