Strawberry Season means Sour-ful Bourbon

For this Strawberry Season, I want to start off with a classic fruit twist. I wanted to do a strawberry season bourbon sour. This cocktail elevates the sour from the fall to the springtime and also makes it perfectly sweet!

Strawberry is not that Sour

Bourbon Sour


2 oz Bourbon

1/2 oz Cointreau

1 oz Lemon Juice

6 Slices of Strawberry

1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Garnish: Strawberry

Recipe: In a cocktail shaker, muddle strawberry slices and simple syrup. Add ice then add the rest of the ingredients. Shake until cold. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a strawberry. On the daily, my cocktail hour always includes a glass of water. Alcohol is dehydrating and adding sugar only adds to that. As for what to pair this cocktail with, I would add something savory or salty. This balances the sweetness of the cocktail.
