Today starts a very special week for me! It’s called bourbon week. So, let’s start drinking some bourbon drinks. Sometimes I get asked about my complete and utter obsession with bourbon. Listen to this, I love bourbon so much that I want it to rain bourbon sometimes! I am from North Carolina so I was basically raised on bourbon. I love the spicy flavor on the rocks, with ginger ale, or in a tasty cocktail.

Join me and let’s discover some new and fun cocktails this week!
