Bourbon Pomegranate Cocktail: The Southern Belle
Southern Girls Love Bourbon! A bourbon pomegranate cocktail with a fruity blush twist, is the perfect drink for any Southern Belle or those who want to be!
I’m a Southern Girl. I don’t have a drawl (I oddly sound Canadian, go figure) and I grew up with school days in Miami and summers in Louisiana. So you would think my go-to libation would be rum or tequila. That would make sense, right?
No way Mister! Bourbon Love Lives Here! …It’s in my soul baby! I am a self-proclaimed “Hit me HARD & Hit me STRONG” girl but I’ve realized a good many of my southern belle sisters (we live in Atlanta now, so I’m surrounded by them) need a lighter and fruitier approach. Something that they still taste the bourbon but is bright and lovely and “Bashfully Pink”. I saw Steel Magnolias, who didn’t?
Today’s Cocktail Friday is called The Southern Belle. A perfect Bourbon Pomegranate Cocktail (my everyday and always brands are Four Roses, Belle Meade and W. L. Weller), Pomegranate Liqueur, Angostura Bitters, simple syrup (read how to make simple syrups here), and seltzer/club soda. An easy to drink cocktail with a sophisticated approachability! Isn’t that what the New South is all about? Elevated ease that’s rooted in history but still pretty to look at?
