Run Four the Roses

What with one thing and another, I find myself on the first Saturday in May without any mint.

That's not a big deal, since I don't need a mint julep to maybe watch the Kentucky Derby if I don't forget to turn the TV on.

I do, after all, have some Four Roses single barrel bourbon. I even have some Koval rose hip liqueur, which has a lightly bitter flavor. Put them together, and you get a Manhattan-y/boulevardier-y cocktail.

Run Four the Roses

  • 2 oz. Four Roses single barrel bourbon
  • 1 oz Koval rose hip liqueur
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir over cracked ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a cherry.
