Try this garden fresh low-cal Mint Julep…

Ingredients:

  • 20ml Bourbon
  • 4 – 5 Mint sprigs
  • 2 sugar cubes or a dash of simple syrup
  • Crushed ice

In a glass, muddle the mint and sugar well, bruising the mint leaves, to dissolve the sugar and release the flavour of the mint. Add the Bourbon. Fill the glass with crushed ice and stir well. Garnish with a mint sprig. For extra freshness, add a twist of lemon rind.

When it’s hot, hot, hot, go for a Tennessee Cooler…

Ingredients:

  • 45ml honey-infused Tennessee Whiskey
  • 100ml apple juice
  • 100ml ginger ale

Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon wedge. And… voilà!

Give some American flair to festive entertaining with an Apple Cider Bourbon cocktail…

Ingredients:

  • One-part Bourbon
  • Three parts apple cider
  • A dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice

Combine chilled cider, lemon juice and Bourbon over ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

On chilly nights around the braai, heat the apple cider with a slice of fresh ginger root, and blend with the Bourbon for a spicy, warming drink garnished with a cinnamon stick. Ring in the changes with a dash of maple syrup for extra sweetness and festive flavour.
