#DOTW: Kentucky Sunset

Let’s cool down in these times of Global Warming. And get a little tipsy, so we can forget about these crazy times for a minute. (Just for a minute though). So here is a yummy cocktail with strawberry nuances, that with a good Bourbon Whiskey will lighten your mood! I’m always on the lookout for a summery Whiskey drink recipe, they are a little harder to find. I’m loving this one, have sip with me.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
  • 1 oz Strawberry liqueur
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • splash of ginger beer

Combine Bulleit Bourbon, Strawberry liqueur, lemon juice and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Top off with a splash of ginger beer. Garnish with a slice of lemon and/or a small strawberry.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
