The Ultimate Bourbon Cocktail–worthy of the Kentucky Derby

A Unique Bourbon Cocktail with Lemon Granita and Balsamic

A bourbon cocktail and dessert in one

Annette Tomei created this drink and dessert in one just for us. This bourbon cocktail is a four-way cultural mix: from the US, northern strawberries and southern spirit; from Italy, northern Balsamic vinegar and southern-style lemon granita… And they all come together in delicious harmony.

But is it an aphrodisiac?

Is it aphrodisiac? Well, it certainly has all the elements as far as we’re concerned. Citrus, strawberries, ginger and bourbon all have an aphrodisiac reputation. As for the results, you be the judge!
