About this Cocktail

The 18.21 Bitters people sent me a bunch of Shrubs, Syrups and Bitters. Awesome stuff. This recipe is one of my "This is not Jack n Coke" type recipes cause I love cola & bourbon but hate Jack n Coke.

The 18.21 Bitters Blackberry Balsamic shrub + Averna give you the "cola" and the shrub comes through really nicely here. A great balance of flavours, not too sweet, not too vinegary, just the right amount of pepper. It's awesome, I totally recommend getting a bottle!

Combine ingredients in tin over ice and shake shake shake. Strain into Collins glass over ice. Top with Club Soda and garnish with Cherries.
