Summer Sips

That is a nice looking peach

The Peach Bourbon Fizz meets our summer drink criteria perfectly

Summer is just around the corner for many of you. It arrived for us about to weeks ago, which is pretty late for these parts. What makes a good summer drink? Well it helps to have lots of fruit and words like fizz or smash in the title. And bourbon. Bourbon can make you forget it’s summer if you drink enough of it. Or at least make summer more tolerable. (We’d like to enter into evidence the blackberry mint julep.)

Blackberry Thyme Martini (see also blackberry gin and tonics, blackberry spritzers)
