If you know us at all by now, you know we can't put any collection of cocktails together without some sort of whiskey or bourbon option. Honestly, who would?
But most people don't think of the brown water when it comes to summertime cocktails. The key is pairing it with bright, refreshing fruit flavors and adding some sort of bubbles to make it gulp-able without completely knocking you on your ass.
The key to this cocktail is all in the raspberry liqueur. DO NOT just use any kind. Invest in the most incredible raspberry liqueur you'll ever try from St George Spirits. It begins as a raspberry brandy before they add pure raspberry juice. The result is as far as the typical cough syrup liqueur as you'll ever find and well worth having a bottle in your liquor cabinet. Trust. Us.
Starting with great bourbon from Four Roses and the St. George Raspberry Liqueur, we add one more key ingredient - St Germain Elderflower Liqueur. If you don't already own a bottle of this then we're revoking your 3st membership. Just kidding.
