What Kind Of Bourbon Should I Use To Make This Drink Recipe?

I’m not going to go so far as to say any kind you want…but any kind you like. The most important part about making mixed cocktails like this Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade is to like whatever alcohol that you’re adding to it.

For instance, don’t go grabbing a bottom shelf bourbon or whiskey that tastes horrible just because you’re adding lemonade and other ingredients. Because then you will have a cocktail that doesn’t taste so great. On the other hand you don’t want to use that top shelf good sipping bourbon for a mixed drink recipe like this one, either.

So use something in between. A bourbon that you enjoy drinking on its own but also doesn’t break the bank.
