Bourbon is a trendy cocktail ‘of the moment’, but I’m not a big fan of sipping it neat. Lucky for us, bourbon also mixes really well to make an awesome cocktail. Black cherry is a flavor that is rich and not overly sweet, so it’s perfect to mix with earthy, smokey bourbon. Give this drink a try, and cheers to you!
Black Cherry Bourbon Mash
1.5 ounces bourbon
2 tbsp black cherries (I used frozen)
1 tsp honey
Scoop of ice
Black Cherry Seltzer
Place the bourbon, frozen cherries and honey in a shaker and mash with a muddler. Add a large scoop of ice. Shake and strain in a cocktail glass. Top with black cherry seltzer.
