Ginger Jingle Cocktail

lime tree

The starting point for this holiday cocktail was my new Bearss lime tree in the backyard. I had no idea there was such a difference between limes, but at first squirt of the tart juices they were calling to me “make a cocktail! make a cocktail!”. The limes, spicy ginger-y notes of Christmas and bourbon make for a delicious seasonal drink. It’s kind of a glorified version of a Seven and Seven, which is alright in my book. Cheers!
