This easy bourbon cocktail recipe From the master, Lynnette Marrero, herself! Just by adding a bit of St. Germain makes all the difference!


  • ½ ounce Grenadine* (to make your own, see below!)
  • ½ ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • ¾ ounce Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ½ ounces Bourbon
  • 5–6 mint leaves
  • Mint sprig, for garnish


  1. Combine all cocktail ingredients except for the mint sprig in a shaker.
  2. Add 4–5 ice cubes
  3. Shake, shake, shake
  4. Using a Hawthorne strainer and a fine-mesh strainer, pour the contents into a coupe glass
  5. Garnish with a mint sprig. 


*If you wish to make the grenadine: You need 16 ounces pomegranate juice and 8 ounces demerara sugar

  • Combine pomegranate juice and demerara sugar in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat.
  • Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes, and set the pan aside to cool.
  • Express the oil from the citrus zests into the pan, and drop the peels into the liquid.
  • Once cool, remove the peels from the liquid and store the grenadine in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
