Bourbon and rose make such a lovely pairing and this drink is a favorite at the end of a long week, or at the end of a short week....okay, we like it any day of the week.
This Hibiscus Rosehip Whiskey Sour Recipe is a great variation of a classic sour cocktail.
Full disclosure: I have some history with the Cosmopolitan. As a college student in the late 90’s who watched Sex and the City, the Cosmo was my drink of choice. In those days, I was usually drinking them out of a plastic cup at my college dive bar.
(I wasn’t very picky. Or very classy.)
When my friends and I were feeling fancy, we would go to the restaurant in town that served them in a martini glass.
Negronis are having a moment and the love doesn’t appear to be fading soon. And what’s not to love? Bitter yet balanced with sweetness, this gin cocktail feels sophisticated without being pretentious.
