Did you attend Bourbonville last night at the Louisville Palace? A new event added to the Kentucky Derby Festival, it was designed to allow individuals that have a deep respect for our Commonwealth’s nectar — bourbon aficionados — to mix, mingle, and enjoy speciality cocktails. The event invited guests to taste signature drinks from Kentucky distilleries, enjoy Bourbon-inspired cuisine, and meet the Master Distillers.
My friends at Four Roses featured a delicious cocktail that I know y’all will love. I posted it over on my Instagram page, but wanted to share here on the blog, too. Perfect for the spring + summer, I think that this would be a lovely cocktail to serve at a Kentucky Derby Party!
Easy to make and delicious, it is sure to please a crowd. Thank me later, y’all!
Four Roses Peach Rose Cocktail
1 oz. Four Roses Single Barrel
1/4 Peach (cut into pieces)
3/4 oz. Simple Syrup
3/4 oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Pimms®
Splash of Ginger Beer
Basil for garnish
- Muddle peach with simple syrup and lemon juice, extracting the flavor.
- Add the Pimms® and Four Roses Single Barrel.
- Shake over ice and strain into a mason jar.
- Fill the glass with crushed ice and top it off with a splash of ginger beer.
- Garnish with a lemon rind + fresh basil.
Any cocktail infused with peach (and that has bourbon) is a cocktail for me, y’all.
As always: Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living!
Y’all come back now, ya hear?
