Why add plain old simple syrup to your whiskey cocktails when you can add bourbon syrup and double down on the sweet caramely flavor?
2 bottles bourbon (Mopho uses Benchmark)
1 quart sugar
1 squeeze lemon juice
- Pour bourbon into a large sauce pot. Add sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice.
- Bring it up to a simmer and stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Let simmer until most alcohol is cooked out and mixture is reduced by about half.
- Strain out any sediment and let cool to room temperature.
