In celebration of the beginning of summer and Memorial Day weekend, we are sharing with you some style guides that will have you looking great for those holiday festivities!
Along with style guides to help you look your best on Memorial Day, we wanted to share some bourbon and barbecue recipes to help you dominate the weekend. Finding a good summer time bourbon cocktail is always difficult, we get tired of being bombarded by coconuts, pineapples, and umbrellas. This drink is for all of us men that are taking a stand!
Admiral Schley Punch
- 1 lime
- 1 ounce Bourbon
- 1 ounce dark Rum
- 1 tespoon sugar
1. Peel lime and add green zest to cocktail shaker. Juice lime and all of the juice to the shaker with rum, bourbon, and sugar. Fill shaker with ice and shake.
This is a perfect summertime refresher, it still has some rum, but that punch of bourbon. Try it out- we’d love to know what you think.
It’s always best to start with the cocktail first, because that’s what makes your cooking better (a little secret we’ve learned). There is nothing we love more than good barbecue, especially for Memorial Day. We stumbled on this recipe about two years ago and we have used it since. Barbecue should always have that sweet and savory flavor and this recipe nailed it!
