The Bourbon Fizz cocktail

What better way to celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month than with some Knob Creek? This twist on the fizz, made with Knob Creek bourbon, was created by chef Michael Symon. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  parts Knob Creek® Bourbon
  • 1/2  part lemon juice
  • 1/2  part simple syrup
  • parts Orangina
  • sprigs thyme
  • egg white

Directions

Muddle thyme and simple syrup thoroughly in the bottom of a shaker. Combine with lemon juice, Knob Creek® Bourbon, and egg white. Add ice and shake vigorously for one minute. Strain over ice and float with Orangina® soda. Garnish with a few sprigs of thyme.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
