All-American Cocktails

June 21, 2010

Tight shot of bouquet of red, white and blue flowers.America. The very word conjures up images of grand canyons, Rock ‘N Roll, and Hollywood — and Bourbon. That’s right, Bourbon. Congress passed an act declaring it America’s official drink, as well it should be. But for those of us whose tastes run a little sweeter might we suggest the southern states’ very own Southern Comfort.

To get in the spirit of July, the month that gave birth to the good ‘ol United States, we suggest you stock up on these amber-colored liquors, and get ready to enjoy a taste of the real America.
