You ever get the feeling your phone or computer is listening to you? You mention something once and then start getting ads for it all the time. That's what led to us trying the bourbon spritz this week.
My dad found the recipe for this drink from Maker's Mark and said we should try it sometime. Over the next few days I kept seeing sponsored posts on social media from Maker's Mark showing how to make this drink. But it clearly worked because my dad went out and bought all the ingredients to put together this delicious cocktail.
I'm a fan of the flavors of bourbon, but sometimes you want something a little lighter and sweeter also. This is the perfect cocktail for that. You get the bourbon as the base liquor, but add in Aperol, Prosecco, some juices and sweeteners and boom! A great drink for happy hour.
1.5 oz. Maker's Mark
1 oz. Aperol
3/4 oz. lemon juice
Splash of simple syrup
Orange peel for garnish
1. Fill a wine glass with ice. Add Maker's Mark, Aperol, lemon juice and simple syrup.
2. Top with Prosecco. Stir.
