Finding the right drink to serve crowd can be a challenge, but this Perfect Harmony Cocktail makes it easy to serve up a party favorite for any occasion!
You guys. Have I got a cocktail for you today! This little baby is from my friends Jordan and Jocelyn from This Girl Walks Into A Bar. You may remember me gushing on Instagram about meeting them last month, and kids they did not disappoint.
Aside from the silly Arizona laws about not being to add booze to their demo drink (how weird is that?!) this cocktail was still totally amazing.
The flavors are perfect harmony, seriously. When Jordan mentioned the cinnamon clove simple syrup I thought it might be a little too much, but it wasn’t. This cocktail is SO well balanced and you can really use just about any liquor you want except scotch or gin and it’ll be great. I’d serve this up for the holidays in a heart beat, but it’s deliciously and refreshing enough to serve year round. But here’s the best part…
I’m hooking you up with all the cocktail goodness from these ladies in their new book Cocktails for Cougars and Cowgirls: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Every Woman! Before you think, “I’m not a cougar or a cowgirl” get over yourself. It’s a cute name and the cocktails are delicious. I’ve tried a couple since getting my book and damn! Be sure to get yourself a copy, and then buy one for a friend too. They’ll be your new BFF when they start trying these drinks. Promise.
