We love Jean Marie Manning! Each week the “Divine Cocktailer” and restaurant consultant brings us a new fabulous way to celebrate the weekend. This Friday she has the most perfect bourbon aperitif – enjoy!


Ah, these cool fall nights, the perfect time for a bourbon cocktail to warm your soul! This bourbon aperitif is simple, easy, and delicious. It’s also an easy-peasy drink to prepare in advance for cocktail parties.
