Have you ever seen a Southern Sunset??
Updated: Mar 28, 2019
We love our sunsets in the South, and when you pair that with Fall's gorgeous color schemes--it's just indescribable. I was watching the sunset the other day over my farm, and when it hit over the trees just right, it made me think of this drink. I can't wait for you to try this great cocktail--by yourself or with a crowd--"Sweet mother of pearl" it's a keeper.
"Southern Sunset" has two of my favorite southern staples--sweet tea and bourbon--and it really does remind me of a sunset in the South.
Jason Smith, FNS
4-oz sweet tea
4-oz cranberry juice
Juice from ½ orange
1-oz bourbon (I use Bloody Butcher from Jeptha Creed)
1-oz apple or honey vodka (I use Jeptha Creed vodka)
1-bottle ginger beer or ginger ale
· Fill 2 pilsner glass ¾ full of ice.
· In a small pitcher place the tea, cranberry, orange juice, bourbon and vodka, stir to combine.
· Divide between the 2 glasses and top off with ginger beer.
Tip: You can also make this into bigger batches if wish.
