On the Rocks + Weekend Links

Kelly  |  January 18

From the archives, this lady-like Mint Julep will no doubt keep you warm and snuggly especially given the unusual cold weather we’ve been having in Santa Barbara (and yes 40 degrees is cold, to me anyway). You can mix up this pretty lady with:

Ingredients:

2 dashes of bitters

1 tsp of maple syrup

1 1/2 shots of bourbon

Fresh mint

*In a martini shaker, muddle a few mint leaves, add bitters, maple syrup, and bourbon, shake well and serve up with a few mint leaves for garnish

And around the web, I’ve spied a number of tasty libations, here are a few of my favorites:

Cider Rum Punch via the Sweetest Occasion

El Calle Real via Mrs. Lilien

Orange Rosemary Spritz via Snippet & Ink

Champagne three ways via Could I Have that

Blood Orange Margarita via Annie’s Eats
