Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful day. The following recipe is a delight, especially if you like bourbon! It is not hard to make, but it does require some preparation a day or two prior to serving.
I like to use fresh berries, but if you are in a pinch frozen berries can be used also. Mint is a pretty garnish, but definitely not necessary! Enjoy!
