Bourbon cocktails are trending and with good reason simply because they’re so darn good. Our Bourbon Margarita Punch Cocktail is a perfect blend of bourbon, tequila-infused margarita mix, and few other unexpected ingredients come together to make this incredibly irresistible cocktail.
I love creating new cocktails because I thoroughly enjoy tinkering around in your home bar and conjuring up mixology magic.
This cocktail came about because my friend Spencer couldn’t decide whether he wanted a bourbon cocktail or a margarita, and after a few failed attempts, this is the drink recipe I created. It’s a well-balanced cocktail, and the bourbon shines through.
But underneath the sour mash bourbon, which I think is ideally suited for mixed drink, is an undercurrent of tequila-infused margarita mix, coconut rum, peach vodka, a couple of dashes of cherry bitters, and a big splash of raspberry cranberry juice.
Despite its ingredient list, this visually dazzling cocktail drinks very light, like a fruity citrus tide barely gracing your taste buds.
The Ingredients You’ll Need To Make This Cocktail:
Bourbon. When making bourbon cocktails, there’s no need to use the best bourbon on the market. Save the high-end bourbon for sippin’ and employ a mid-level bourbon for mixing purposes. For this cocktail, I used one of my favorite all-purpose bourbons, Henry McKenna Bourbon Whiskey Sour Mash ALC./VOL. 40%.
Tequila Margarita Mix. At times there’s nothing wrong with wanting something with tequila in it but isn’t necessarily a margarita. This is one cocktail that satisfies your tequila fix and then some. For this cocktail recipe, I highly recommend Jose Cuervo Strawberry Lime Margarita mix.
Caribbean Rum. Another unlikely ingredient is the addition of Caribbean rum with coconut liqueur, it unexpected but oh so yummy.
Peach Vodka. I scream. You scream. We all scream for peach vodka. I love the addition of peach vodka with its fruity and sweet kick; it’s a great supporting cast in this potent punch cocktail.
Cherry Bitters. Any good cocktail is a well-balanced blend of sweet and bitter flavors, and cherry bitters in this cocktail do the trick.
Raspberry-Cranberry Juice. It’s the raspberry cranberry juice that brings this beautiful cocktail altogether.
