Sometimes I trudge along, making the same-old same-old. And that's fine. Sometimes people need to be reminded that asparagus is delicious even if you just roast it, right? We all do that at our jobs. If we're hitting home runs everyday... well, maybe the job is a bit too easy for us, no? But this week I was reminded that sometimes brilliance comes. For me it came in the form of a marmalade bourbon sour. The better and more bitter the marmalade you use, the more tempting and dangerous these drinks will be. Serve them with salty snacks - salty crackers or cheesy crackers are a particularly good match with these sweet-yet-a-wee-bit-bitter cocktails.
Play around with the proportions, add your own flair and let me know what you come up with. Cocktails are, I find, incredibly flexible and fun to play with.
