Bourbon Ginger Fizz

bourbon ginger fizz Bourbon is such a classic guy drink. And it happens to be Mark’s favorite (notice that the bourbon bottle is almost empty). He is always thrilled with a gift that stocks his bourbon collection, and I enjoy picking one with a pretty label because there are about a zillion brands to try. So in honor of Father’s Day we’ll be buying some bourbon and enjoying this tasty, not too sweet summer drink. If you’re not a bourbon nut (I’m not) the ginger and bubbly club soda nicely mellow things out.

Bourbon coctail recipe The inspiration for this drink came from Rachael Ray’s magazine. Her show drives me a little insane but her magazine is my foodie favorite. Possibly because she always has a plethora of drink recipes. Love that in a gal.

    I think I missed the memo saying that bourbon was a ‘guy’s’ drink Stephanie. I think I personally contributed to Jack Daniel’s profits over a 15 year period. LOL This recipe does, however, sound absolutely gorgeous and very refreshing, even for a gal. I’ve gotta say though, serving it up in Mason jars does give it a bit of a moonshine look. LOL Your photography is always lovely though.

    Ooh, ginger and peppercorns… spicy! I’m not a huge bourbon fan but this mixed drink still sounds yummy and looks so cute served in those mason jars. Perfect for summer!
