Smoky Whiskey Sour Cocktail SyrupMADE BY BITTERMILK IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA
This mixer takes all the guesswork out of making sublime cocktails; it's right there for you with smoky and artisan ingredients! We especially like this one because it pairs perfectly with a smooth bourbon, bringing out all of the charred barrel flavors, and it highlights a hint of sweetness with some honey.
Forget what you've heard about whiskey sours. When made well, there's almost nothing better, and with this secret-weapon cocktail syrup, you'll have an amazing version at the ready.
Makers Joe and MariElena Raya combine bitter (orange peel), sweet (honey and sugar) and acidic (lemon juice) flavors to build a balanced, sippable bitter. Then, they take this classic and give it one more twist: Bourbon Barrel smoked honey that adds just a wisp of smoke to every sip.
Hello, happy hour! These cocktails are as easy to make as they are to drink, and we love that the syrup is made with all organic ingredients. We'll drink to that (and did we mention how gorgeous the bottle is?!).
tip of the tongue
We like to pair this syrup with Great Lakes Distillery's Kinnickinnic Whiskey. Just shake equal parts whiskey and cocktail syrup with lots of ice until very cold, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass or a tumbler with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange peel, and if you're feeling extra fancy, a Mess Hall Cocktail Cherry. Cheers!
