Honey bourbon cocktail

Before we left California, we threw a big party to clean out the liquor cabinet, since we had to bring everything we wanted to take in the car with us. With our much-depleted bar, now that we have landed in Texas, it has been a challenge finding new cocktails to feature lately.

But, never fear! Bourbon to the rescue, once again. Add some great local honey and some of my brandied cherries, and it’s sold.

Come to mama.

We will rebuild the bar, slowly but surely. Until that day, I don’t mind relying on good ol’ bourbon every now and again.
