Infused Bourbon Sour – Recipe! Cocktail Time!

Print Friendly

The Bourbon Sour is my husband’s favorite cocktail and we usually whip up a batch now and again for celebrations or just because.  This new version of the Infused Bourbon Sour is made with a honey syrup that is steeped with lemongrass.  I make this special syrup for cocktails, to splash on fresh fruit or to add in salad dressings.  I use Bullet 10 in this recipe, but most people have a favorite.

Honey Syrup is simple to make – equal parts honey and water simmered in a saucepan.  But with this new recipe for honey syrup, I add a smashed stalk of lemongrass for a fresh new lemon essence.  Citrus is subtle in lemongrass and I enjoy the fragrance in a smooth syrup like this one.

These cocktails are fun to make at parties or small get-togethers with friends.  You can make a larger batch ahead of time by quadrupling the recipe or make them fresh with a designated bartender.

Ingredients

Bourbon, your choice

Infused Honey Syrup – equal parts honey + water + 1 stalk of lemon grass smashed

Lemons, depends on how many cocktails you are making

Ice

(Makes 1 darn good cocktail)

To Prepare:

1.  To make the honey syrup, add all the ingredients to a saucepan and simmer.  Turn the heat off and let the lemongrass steep in the syrup until the liquid reaches room temperature.  Disgard the lemongrass stalk ( you can store the syrup in a refrigerator for several weeks).  Gather all your ingredients to make the cocktails.
