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

1 oz honey
1/2 oz hot water
5 brandied cherries and a couple of teaspoons of their liquid
Put brandied cherries in the bottom of a shaker and muddle. Add all the other ingredients with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass.
