Blue Ribbon Recipe

With a subtle bourbon flavor, this yummy drink will appeal to a wide range of party guests. We think even people who say they don't like bourbon, will like this. The citrus flavors are what shine in this adult beverage. After this cocktail sits in the glass for a while, it gets nice and slushy. A perfect cocktail for summer parties and BBQ's.
