Bourbon Renewal Cocktail

Bourbon Renewal

Jeffery Morganthaler created the Bourbon Renewal while he was in Eugene, Oregon. At that time, his business partner had a band of the same name. When the Band split up, Jeff asked if he could you the name. Twenty years later, he’s still serving the Bourbon Renewal. This cocktail is a variation of a sour, and some consider it a variation of the Bramble. Either way, it tastes great with a spicy Bourbon as its base, mellowed out by coming black current liqueur. Try it out and let us know what you think.
