Bourbon Pomegranate Sour

by James Stevenson

Today I am sharing another sour recipe! I am so obsessed with sours at the moment and wanted to share this lovely treat! This is the perfect cocktail for a happy hour or date night. The pomegranate flavor blends so well with the spiciness of the bourbon. The sweetness of the pomegranate syrup balances well with the citrus. If you are looking for a cocktail that will take your typical bourbon cocktail up a notch this one is it!
