Back in the Saddle with the Bourbon Triple Sour

Due to some logistical issues and a move, I haven’t had much time to whip up my own concoctions, forcing me to wander NOVA aimlessly lurching from one cocktail bar to another.  Sad days 🙂  But newly unpacked and with a few guests over, I shook the dust off and got back at it.  I’ve been getting more and more into bourbon especially Elijah Craig, so I worked on making a lighter bourbon summer sipper.  With fresh lemon juice and homemade simple syrup, I made a  Bourbon Triple Sour:

This was a great, simple drink — a perfect balance of that oaky, bourbon taste and a sweeter, citrusy cut.  It really was a sublime outdoor drink — sip one at 85 degrees like I did yesterday and you’ll taste what I mean.  My guests, including a bourbon skeptic, also enjoyed it, so I’ll definitely be adding this to the regular repertoire.
