Hot Honey Cocktail with Fresh Peaches & Texas Bourbon

We love classic cocktails as much as the next person. But sometimes you want to mix it up, and give your taste buds a change of pace.

A flavor combination we love in a cocktail? Sweet and spicy. So we partnered with our friends at Dripping Springs Distilling to bring you the most delicious cocktail that combines the best of both worlds. Let's call it a spicy combination of a bee's knees and old fashioned: hints of lemon and honey flavor with the oaky and sweet flavors of a nice high-quality bourbon.

But they've added a Central Texas twist to this unique beverage: fresh peaches from the Lone Star state, and a dose of our Hot Honey Balsamic Vinegar to add that sweet heat and take this cocktail to the next level. The spicy honey flavors combined with the fresh peaches and Texas Bourbon is exactly what the doctor ordered, and the perfect cocktail all year round!

  • 2oz Dripping Springs Distilling 1876 Bourbon
  • .75oz fresh lemon juice
