It has been fun to mix up different cocktails at happy hour for my Uncle, who is visiting from New Zealand. Here are a couple of the recent libations we have enjoyed. With the warmth of the bourbon and the addition of the apple cider, they are both great for fall!! Perfect for a quiet night at home, or to share with friends!!
BOURBON PEACH COCKTAIL
4 tablespoons bourbon
juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon peach schnapps
2 tablespoons club soda
3 to 4 dashes of bitters
Combine first 4 ingredients in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice. Cover with lid and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Strain bourbon mixture into a glass filled with ice, top with club soda and bitters.
