Now, take that perfect cozy day, and add a tasty winter cocktail. It’s somehow even better. Is there a word for better than perfect? Whether or not that exists, this bourbon cocktail does and it’s my new favorite wintery drink. I’ve recently become much more of a bourbon fan than I ever thought I could or would be. I find myself gravitating to the bourbon cocktails on menus when we’re dining out, or electing to make cocktails featuring bourbon for friends when we’re hosting them right here in our home.

Are you a fan of bourbon or do you tend to avoid it? I started out the latter, and have become the former. I’m constantly experimenting with bourbon and would love to know your favorite way to enjoy the spirit
