Bourbon Street | Cocktail Party

Bourbon Street

Bourbon Street sour highball with fresh strawberries, ginger syrup, honey syrup, bourbon, lemon juice, and sparkling water

Bourbon and fresh, juicy strawberries just scream summertime to us, and so it’s no wonder that the Bourbon Street (by Dave Whitton and Arianna Reel Cook at One-Eyed Gypsy in Los Angeles) has become our cookout go-to when the weather starts to warm up.

If you’re fresh out of club soda or plain sparkling water, we can attest that the Bourbon Street is just as lovely when topped with a lemon- or strawberry-flavored sparkling water.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberries and syrups in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients (except the sparkling water) and shake very well. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass, top with sparkling water, and garnish with a strawberry and a mint leaf.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
