Bourbon Ginger Fizz

bourbon ginger fizzBourbon 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 recipeThe 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!
