The Bourbon Sunset

A sunset symbolizes the completion of a hard day’s work. It’s a great reminder to rest and reset our hearts and minds at the end of each and every day. To help make your sunset viewing a little more enjoyable, we introduce you to The Bourbon Sunset. A sweet, beautiful cocktail that resembles the colors of a picturesque sunset.

That beautiful color and sweet taste come from Pope’s Kitchen Cranberry Lime Cocktail Syrup. Few things will brighten a glass like ruby red cranberry. They wove together the tart bite of whole cranberries with a lift of fresh lime juice, creating a syrup that refreshes any cocktail experience. Our Wheat Penny Bourbon shines alongside this Cranberry Lime Cocktail Syrup. Once you take that first sip, you’ll be hooked for the rest of the summer. Sunsets will become your new found obsession.

The ingredients listed are enough for two cocktails. So, it is your decision to invite some company or to just keep it between you and the sunset. Totally up to you, this is a judgment-free zone here. Just remember, please drink responsibly.
