Cocktail: Honey Winter Bourbon
» 2 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
» 1.5 oz. Honey sage syrup

“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.”
