The Bourbon Rosemary Smash Cocktail

Fall is here, which means bring on the spices and the bourbon! I didn’t go full send on the fall cocktail just yet though.๐Ÿ˜ ย Since the weather is still quite nice outside, I was feeling a more refreshing fall inspired drink, and the fresh lemon gives it just that!ย ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿ˜‹

Ingredients (for 1):

1.5ozย bourbon (I used Russell’s Reserve)ย ๐Ÿฅƒ
1ozย fresh lemon juiceย ๐Ÿ‹
.75ozย dark amber maple syrup*ย ๐Ÿ
4ย large sprigs of rosemaryย ๐ŸŒฟ

Process:

  1. Crush 2ย large sprigs of rosemary in your hand and add it to the shaker with ice.
  2. Add the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup (*depending on your lemons & tastebuds you may need to add a little more or less syrup) and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  3. Strain into a rocks glassย with large cubes of ice and garnish with aย rosemary sprig.

Very similar to a Bourbon Sour but the rosemary and maple give it a necessary fall update.ย ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜› I think fall is my favorite season for cocktails. Things get a little stiffer, a bit more sophisticated and interesting.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

With everything unimaginably terrible going on in the world, sometimes it’s nice to take a moment for yourself. Learn a new recipe/skill, a little zen moment, if you will. That’s what making cocktails is for me….and then I just get drunk toย forget all about the worst of it.ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ But honestly, anyone else know how to better deal with all this catastrophe in the world?! ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฅƒ

๐Ÿฅƒ +ย ๐Ÿ‹ +ย ๐Ÿ +ย ๐ŸŒฟ =ย ๐Ÿ˜„ #SippinSunday

    You posted this at the most perfect time. Made it for a dinner party as the pre-dinner cocktail and it was a huge hit. Couldn’t have asked for a better early fall beverage. Thank you!!
