March in a Glass

Tame the Lion with a Bourberry Fizz.

The metaphor holds true; last night the weather roared with 55 mph winds, pelting rain, and bitter cold temps.  The morning brought abundant sunshine, a soft breeze, and warm air.

The Bourberry Fizz is a TAC original cocktail.  It  has a nice belt of bourbon that’s gently tamed by the sweet flavor of Chambord.

The Bourberry Fizz
1 1/2 oz bourbon
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz Chambord or raspberry liqueur
Top with club soda

Pour Chambord into a pint glass filled with ice, we dropped in a few raspberries for good measure.  In an ice filled shaker add lemon juice, simple syrup, and bourbon. Shake. Strain contents into the pint glass, top with club soda. Garnish with lemon and berries.

Here’s hoping the lamb is here to stay!
