We’re transitioning into Fall! This means it’s time to bring out your dark liqueurs to keep you cozy and warm throughout the cold. When it’s hot out we typically prefer lighter drinks to keep us cool sometimes non alcoholic beverages that are slushy, frozen, and with lots of ice. When it’s cold out, it’s the opposite. We lean towards heavier, richer drinks that have less ice or no ice and dive into bourbons, whiskeys, heavier wines and stouts.
A bourbon sour finds itself in the middle. It is shaken over ice to chill yet still has a subtle underlying richness from the bourbon. You can get the best of both summer and fall in this happy medium cocktail.
The sweetness of the bourbon make it a great liqueur to mix as a cocktail enhancing any fruit it is paired with. Here we chose to infuse it with the fall flavours of plums! We’ve been into plums lately if you haven’t noticed.. The slight sweetness of plums pairs beautifully with the hints of caramel and vanilla of the bourbon making it a tart but a little sweet delight for your taste buds. The plum syrup can be made in advanced and stored in the refrigerator and keeps for 4 days.
This is a great cocktail if your hosting any holiday get togethers as an added bonus if you find yourself with leftover plums try our plum crostini’s! https://thecommunalfeast.com/2019/10/plum-crostinis-with-apple-maple-boursin/
