Taking advantage of the summer strawberry season, this week’s cocktail makes use of black currant liqueur and fresh fruit to create a refreshing bourbon drink that tastes like a real treat.

The Strawberry Hills cocktail is based on the mint julep so you’ll find that it’s bold, minty and spirit forward, while tasting like a perfect summer day and fruity candy. What more can you ask for?
