You know what I love about this drink? You can make it without buying any super expensive alcoholic beverage I’ve never heard of!

I always get to the list of ingredients on these posts and go, “Nope, never going to make that one either.” But this I could totally make. Although I’d have to buy bourbon, so I probably won’t. But at least I know what bourbon is!
