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.
Blue Grass Cocktail
Strike up the band and whip up this drink
Get smooched by this sumptuous Southern sweetheart
By any other name it’s just as sweet
Fast to make but goes down slow
Everyone’s favorite at a picnic or ballgame
Sweet & Tangy
Pucker up for the taste of this original
It’s right up there with Mom and apple pie
