Happy Friday everybody! It’s been a little while since we’ve posted a drink recipe, and we used to crank them out pretty regularly. We’re calling this one a Cherry Bourbon Smash, with lime and angostura bitters and it’s coming to you courtesy of my husband. Incidentally, this will be the last drink that I consume for the next month. With my 36th birthday fast approaching, I thought a little detox was well in order after what was, frankly, a pretty indulgent summer. It’s always good to keep ourselves in check, right?! Maybe next month I’ll try to cut out coffee. Ha. Yeah right.
Cherries and bourbon are a relatively common combo, but the addition of lime, ginger beer and bitters really pushes this one over the top and gives it some extra complexity. Cheers!
