Bourbon Limonana

Ahh, summertime! It's hot as balls outside, you've been braving the heat and now it's time for some booze. You want something with a good kick, but something that's also got some 'quench-appeal.' Enter the Bourbon Limonana.

Limonana is a type of lemonade made with fresh mint leaves that's popular throughout much of the Middle East. It just sounded so damn delicious that the natural next thought was "add bourbon!" While we chose to make it frozen in a blender, you could also just shake the shit out of this one and it would still be delicious.

So, let's get started. 

 

equipment:

blender
cocktail glass

ingredients:

1 oz. fresh lemon juice
8-10 large fresh mint leaves
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
ice

 

method:

in a blender, combine lemon, mint, simple syrup and bourbon. Fill your glass with ice to measure quantity and empty the ice into the blender. Puree until very smooth and transfer to glass. Toss a straw in that bitch and enjoy - responsibly, please!
