Does the Type of Bourbon Matter?
I used what I already have on hand and so can you. This drink recipe is all about changing up the flavors in the glass so that the bourbon is nice and palatable, so don’t worry about using high-quality bourbons as the flavor will be well hidden being the citrus flavors in the cocktail.

If you don’t have or don’t like grenadine syrup you can use a simple replacement like raspberry syrup to help flavor the drink and give it that pink color we’re looking for.
