Honey Winter Bourbon Cocktail with Honey Sage Syrup

In a pretty fantastic mood today! Want to know why? Because I leave for California in the morning! My grandma is turning 80 on the 19th so my mom and I thought it would be fun to fly out to L.A. and take a three generation road trip up Highway 1 to San Francisco. I seriously could not be more excited for this adventure and my grandma is the funniest person I know so she’ll be the perfect road trip buddy. The only thing I’m not looking forward to is packing.

I’m absolutely hopeless when it comes to packing, especially for a big trip like this one. I over pack like nobody’s business and typically have to check, recheck, write a list, check it twice (see what I did there) and still end up not bringing something I need/wanted. So when it came to packing for this trip I decided to have a little cocktail before hand. I figured this could either relax me or I’ll get to San Francisco in December and pull out bikinis and high waisted shorts. Reason to shop maybe? Either way I knew I’d need something to help me pack.

In my effort to relax pre-packing and bring that comforting winter feeling to my soul I made this gorgeous Honey Winter Bourbon Cocktail with Honey Sage Syrup. The bite from the orange and the sweetness from the honey sage syrup pair perfectly with Wild Turkey Bourbon. This is definitely not one of those sweet girly drinks, you’ve got to actually like the taste of bourbon. So if you’re looking to relax, have to pack, or want to put hair on your chest, whip up one of these cocktails; you’ll be ready to take on the world instantly.
