  • 2 ounces bourbon your favorite brand
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce burnt honey syrup see below for recipe
  • 1 teaspoon orange marmalade for storebought I like Bonne Maman, or easily make your own


For Burnt Honey Syrup: 

  • Heat 1/2 cup of honey in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Once the honey starts to simmer and foam reduce the heat to low. Let the honey cook over low heat, stirring constantly for another 2-3 minutes, or until the honey turns a deep golden brown. Remove from heat and immediately add 1/3 cup water and stir to combine. Let the mixture cool. This should keep refrigerated for up to a month.

For the Burnt Honey Bourbon Sour: 

  • Shake all ingredients together with ice, then fine strain over a rocks glass filled with ice.
