The Sweet Bourbon Mixer Beloved By Children
In addition to popular bourbon mixers such as Coca-Cola, ginger beer, and ginger ale is something that you probably drank quite a bit of as a child: apple juice.
The tart sweetness of apple juice and the rich smokiness of bourbon pair well together. Both pair really well with similar flavors like cinnamon, vanilla, and caramel.
Choose a solid bourbon that you already enjoy and find a fresh bottle of apple juice if you can. This pair can be served over ice in a cocktail glass or as an apple hot toddy.
