There are a variety of "Bucks" in the cocktail world consisting of some sort of spirit, citrus and ginger beer. The Kentucky Buck includes berries, bitters & bourbon and if that doesn't scream southern hospitality, we don't know what does. Let's get mixin'!
1 chopped and muddled strawberry
The juice of one lemon
½ ounce simple syrup
2 oz. Bourbon
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 oz. ginger beer
Lemon wheel for garnish
Note: If you don't have strawberries, use strawberry jam!
Muddle the strawberry in a shaker.
Add the simple syrup, bourbon, lemon juice & bitters.
Strain into a highball glass with fresh ice.
Garnish with a lemon wheel.
