Cocktail: Honey Winter Bourbon


»          2 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
»          1.5 oz. Honey sage syrup
»          Garnish: orange peel and sage leaf

Method: Stir bourbon and honey sage syrup with ice in a mixing glass. Fill a lowball glass with ice and strain mix over ice. Twist your orange peel directly over glass to release oils. Garnish with a sage leaf and orange peel.

“With winter [here], it was time to switch up our cocktail list,” said Events Coordinator Nicole Bileau. “We wanted to craft a new cocktail that would feature one of our house-made cordials or infused simple syrups. After several trial runs, we created the perfect infusion of honey and sage into a savory herbal simple syrup. The citrus from the orange combined with the sweet earthiness from the honey sage syrup pair perfectly with the woody, smoky notes of your favorite bourbon.”
