For the longest time, I couldn’t stand bourbon. I tried it and immediately my face would uncontrollably look as though I had eaten an entire lemon, seeds and all. I don’t know why – perhaps bourbon is more of an acquired taste? But now, I can happily say I’ve been enjoying bourbon, especially when it’s in drinks like this Grapefruit Bourbon Cocktail with Basil.
I wonder if my recent taking to bourbon had anything to do with all the time I spent in Atlanta the past year and a half.
Maybe the south and its delicious cocktails got to me. Oh you know, like the pimento cheese (WITH BACON JAM! what up, Victory Sandwich Bar), saying hello to strangers, and dining al fresco.
Speaking of which, can we move to Atlanta yet or what?
Back on topic. This particular grapefruit bourbon cocktail is refreshing with a bit of tartness thanks to the grapefruit, and an incredible smell which can partially be attributed to the fresh basil syrup.
Still looking for more cocktail inspiration? Here it is.
