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!


Definitely going to have to try the mint one. So excited for spring!


Love these springy cocktails. Cannot wait to try them out! The second one sounds so good. And the flowers are prettyyyyy.
