It is about that time again when the sun rises early and sets late. Summer is just around the corner for fabulous outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, or smoking BBQ. You might even happen to hear 'Cock-a-doodle-doo!' from some roosters on your outdoor adventure depending on where you live. Since you have been out and about while having fun under the blazing sun, why not beat the heat this evening with some Summer Bourbon cocktails? This cocktail has the power to quench your thirst as you gaze at the twilight night sky dwindling down.
Do not break a sweat because this is one easy-to-follow cocktail recipe that you will return to on a whim not only during the summertime but really any time of year.
More specifically, this is a Bourbon Cherry Fizz cocktail that has just the right amount of effervescence you desire at the dinner table. Want to know why this bourbon drink with cherry is so wonderful? Well, it’s because cherries and bourbon greatly complement each other! Also, who doesn’t love a refreshing citrusy bourbon fizz? We will be using Balcones Pot Still Bourbon and Fee Brothers Orange Bitters if you were following us step by step. This summer cocktail recipe calls for the above ingredients as well as Sprite, cherries, cherry syrup and last but not least, orange half wheel.
Your friends will be greatly impressed with the result of this recipe so be sure to make a 60 oz pitcher of bourbon cherry cocktail for the whole party. If you want to really feel like a skilled cocktail bartender, be sure to also grab your muddle, jigger, bar spoon, and 12 oz rock glasses before you make multiple summer bourbon drinks to share. Just add fizz (Sprite) before serving. For whichever occasion y’all will have a blast. Cheers!
