cocktail corner blue


What is an average red blooded American who happens to blog about and review whiskey on a regular basis to do when his home is blanketed under over a foot of soft, fluffy, white, COLD snow?

Make a cocktail with it…out of bourbon, of course.

I sort of winged this one based on what I had available in the Modern Thirst compound.  It’s sort of a cross between a snow cone, a bourbon sour, and a whiskey grenadine.  So it’s a Snourbon Grenadour…or something.  Who cares?  It was tasty.Snocktail - Ancient Ancient Age
