Jump Start 4th of July with Love Bites & Bourbon

Jump Start 4th of July with Love Bites & Bourbon

July 4th weekend is just around the corner and I find myself online searching for something to serve to jump start my BBQ feast.  Keeping it simple is always a plus in my book and this recipe by the Pretty Blog caught my attention. A four-ingredient recipe and no cooking required. Sweet! I’d like to serve up something other than prosecco, beer or wine to start so bourbon seemed a nice pairing.  #LoveBitesAndBourbon

BABY BOURBON SMASH  (lower left)

A very straightforward smash, this is likely what you’d get if you bellied up to most bars and asked for a ‘Whiskey Smash’


  • 1 1/2 parts Hudson Baby Bourbon
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 fresh lemon wedges
  • 1 1/2 parts Hudson Four Grain Bourbon Apple
  • 1/2 part simple syrup (1:1)
  • 1/4 part Ruby Port (or a fruity red wine if you don’t have port handy)
