The Satchmo Cocktail

The Satchmo Cocktail

The Satchmo cocktail is a Sazerac style drink with a fruity, spicy tea twist. We’ve taken plum nectar, jasmine tea and ginger liqueur and blended them with our favorite Kentucky bourbon for a drink recipe that makes us think of lazy New Orleans nights. Want to make this a sparkling drink? Swap out the ginger liqueur for ginger ale. Can’t find plum nectar or plum juice? Try using pomegranate juice instead. The drink will still be fabulous!
