A tart and sweet combo with bourbon, this is a very refreshing cocktail.
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.
