Thirsty Thursday: A Brilliant Bourbon Cocktail Recipe

Bourbon Daisy

The Daisy Cocktail is one of the original cocktails, a combination of base spirit (rum, gin, vodka, brandy, etc), a sour component, and traditionally soda water. This version, from Watershed Distillery (the Ohio micro-distillery), gives it a modern twist by muddling lemon with bitters, giving it a shake with bourbon, grapefruit juice and agave nectar, and finally topping it all with a float of amaro.
