There’s nothing better than the sense of accomplishment after a job well done, whether it’s professionally or personally. Then, there’s the accomplishment after winning a sporting event. ‘How sweet it is,’ said Comedian/Actor Jackie Gleasson.
This cocktail is to honor all the golfers out there that played their best game, sunk the 20 ft. putt, or won their Senior Club Championship flight. Yes, a friend of mine from Paducah Tilghman High School in Paducah, Kentucky just accomplished a job well done.
In honor of David Guess, I have made the perfect winner’s cocktail. It’s made with bourbon (my personal favorite - Woodford Reserve) and infused ginger simple sugar (simple sugar made with honey and fresh ginger slices).
Ginger Bourbon Infusion recipe:
Shot of bourbon
Three slices of fresh ginger
