  • 1.5 oz. I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
  • .5 oz. Grenadine

Instructions: Shake and strain over fresh ice in an old fashioned glass.  Garnish with a lemon wheel or mint leaves.

Spring is in the air! Sunshine and blue skies inevitably accompany a craving for fresh and fruity cocktails. I.W. Harper Bourbon Whiskey has provided a couple perfect recipes for this time of year. Had lots of fun making (and drinking) them while enjoying a lovely Saturday on the porch with my dear friend Liz.

Two top-notch options for a seasonal social gathering — picnics, backyard bbq’s or even a Kentucky Derby party (that’s where this wonderful whiskey originates from, after all).

Cheers and enjoy!

    Just spent the weekend in New Orleans and spent some time talking to a bartender with our group. Cocktails are really popular now. Old ones are coming back. These look great. Will have to try them!
