Thirsty Thursdays: Bourbon Sour

Yesterday I was looking for an autumnal cocktail that included bourbon and apple cider to try.  My first thoughts were of a toasty drink in a mug that would be great on a brisk evening.  It is 80 degrees here in sunny California so we were toasty enough.  I settled on a Southern classic - a Bourbon Sour!

We seem to be on a bourbon Kick, and as you can see we have drank our way through the Woodford Reserve and are now on to Jim Beam.  I would suggest Jim Beam for this recipe since this is a mixed drink and you would lose all the flavor of the oak aging with the other ingredients.

Bourbon Sour

3/4 cup of bourbon
3/4 cup apple cider
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/4 cup of sugar
an apple for garnish
crushed ice

1. Combine the firs 4 ingredients and stir until all the sugar is dissolved.  I suggest a clear container so you can see the bottom.
2. Pour over crushed ice and garnish with thinly sliced apples.
