THE BOURBON SIDECAR summer is better with bourbon

There is something about bourbon in the summertime that just seems to make everything alright. You know what I mean? If you’ve been following along, you know that we have been exploring the realms of whiskey based cocktails over the past few months with the help of our friends at Michter’s & it’s been a blast. I always thought of whiskey & bourbon as cooler weather spirits but thanks to gems like today’s Bourbon Sidecar – I have been proved wrong.

Do yourself a favor – swing by and pick up a bottle of Michter’s Bourbon, call some friends over this weekend, and whip up a few of these Sidecars. Ridiculously easy to make & always delicious, the Bourbon Sidecars are quickly becoming a “sip on the patio” weekend drink at the Kelp house. Give it a try & tell us what you think!

BLOOD ORANGE BOURBON SMASH

IMG_7103A few weeks ago we threw a whisky tasting party with some friends & we’ve been on an American whisky (or bourbon) kick ever since. From what I have learned, the main difference between scotch and whisky is geographic and ingredients. Scotch is whisky made in Scotland & bourbon is whiskey made in the states.

We got our hands on Michter’s small batch bourbon and we’ve been mixing up cocktails ever since. Today we are sharing our latest obsession – the Blood Orange Bourbon Smash. Yes, it actually is as good as it sounds & it’s perfect for a fun get-together with friends, a little March Madness party, or heck, to celebrate the end of a long work week. Check it out & let us know what you think!

1 cup granulated sugar

2 inches ginger, peeled and sliced into disks
