Honey Citrus Creek

Soooo much deliciousness in this cocktail. To be honest I was sure if the hubs would like it, but he loved it. In fact he drank mine, so that is a good sign. I know this cocktail will be what the hubs drinks for Christmas Breakfast.

Let’s talk about this drink came about. First we love bourbon and Knob Creek Maple Bourbon is our favorite. I looked to see what we had at home and I thought, I know Bourbon pairs well with a lot of fruit so why not try it with orange. I also feel like Aperol is only used with champagne and I wanted to change that. So hubs and I played with making this cocktail. We tried different portions of everything and this is the best one we did.

Cheers from my Kitchen to your Kitchen 💕
