Plum Bourbon with Elderflower

Plum Bourbon with Elderflower

Here’s a cool cocktail before we’re engulfed in deep autumn. Any leftover plum syrup from previous recipes will come in handy for this refreshing drink.

Plum Bourbon with Elderflower

This plum cocktail is pretty much the perfect drink for the transition from late summer into fall. It’s icy cold to combat the heat, fruity but not too sweet, and the depth of flavor from the bourbon makes this a real winner.

Though you do need to make a plum syrup, this is actually a very easy cocktail to make. The syrup makes enough for three cocktails and can easily be scaled down or up.
