For years I flirted with gin and tequila but as I’ve grown up I’ve discovered bourbon and I can’t imagine going back. I’ll still be sipping G&T’s on a spring day and you better believe that Tequila and Vodka will always have a home on the bar cart, but the spirit I consistently want more than any other is bourbon.
I think bourbon has become a firm favourite because there is literally a bourbon cocktail recipe for every occasion. From a hot toddy to soothe a winter cold to a mint julep on a hot summer’s day, there are numerous bourbon cocktail recipes for every occasion. Every occasion. Not sure how many times I need to write that until I convince you, but I’m going to stop with that because if you’ve read this far you’re probably a die-hard bourbon fan who doesn’t need convincing. Hello, friend.
