Guys, have I told you about my bourbon obsession? Ever since stepping foot in the South, I've had a hankering for bourbon that just cannot be quelled. Strange, considering my past liking of girly, fruity drinks.
Four Roses is one of my new favorites--and it's not just because I got a complimentary bottle to make a recipe with!--and it hits all the notes of what's great about bourbon, with some fruit flavors as well. It's smooth, mellow, and perfect to sip.
Turns out, there's a perfect drink that marries my love of bourbon with my taste for fruit: an old fashioned! It's becoming my new favorite drink to order when I'm out, and I feel like I've perfected the at-home version as well. I added a bit more southern flair by adding peaches and a splash of Texas Honey lemonade. Enjoy on the porch while you watch the sunset!
