How to Make the Southern 75, a Down-South Take on a Classic
In this cocktail by Nate Shuman of Edgar's Proof & Provision in Atlanta, bourbon, brown sugar simple syrup, lemon and bitters conjoin with an American IPA for a drink that's as warm as Southern hospitality. Like the classic French 75, this cocktail features a classic Southern spirit (bourbon) and mixes it with beloved Southern bubbles (an IPA), alongside the citrus and sugar staples. Take a little trip down South with the Southern 75:
- 1.5 oz Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
- .5 oz brown sugar simple syrup
- .75 oz fresh lemon juice
- 3 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters
- 6 oz. American IPA
Add bourbon, syrup, lemon and bitters into shaker with ice and shake. Pour into 6 ounces of American IPA. Garnish with flamed lemon peel and serve up.
