Ginger Bourbon Fizz

 Spring has sprung and cocktails are flowing in Long Beach.  I have some pretty exciting news… I am starting to love bourbon!!  Matt has liked it for awhile but it always made me a little nervous.  That is until I combined it with ginger ale and lemon.  This drink is my new go to cocktail because it is light, fresh and perfectly boozy.  I also added mint to this version and it was just divine.  I also may have bought some candied ginger along with my dried mangoes at the farmers market this week.  It’s dangerous how many vendors at my farmers market take card now… but support the local economy right?  If you aren’t a bourbon fan, I am sure ginger ale, lemon and mint would be amazing on their own as well.  You don’t really need a recipe for this one, just a shot of bourbon, top with ginger ale & the juice of half a lemon.  Simple and perfect.  I may be drinking one as I type this…

 If you can drink it in a cute mason jar glass with a handle that would probably be best.   (but a red solo cup works too)
