bourbon sippin'...

we have a lot of bourbon sitting on our bar right now. the husband is a big fan of the kentucky native libation and is usually gifted a bottle (or two or three) here and there for special occasions. the other night we tried dinner at boston chops, a newish steakhouse bistro in the south end and on the cocktail menu was a drink which i think was named #smashed (but i could be wrong about the name). it was a bourbon drink and even i ordered it it sounded so delicious. let me tell you, this is a dangerous drink, it tastes soooo damn good. i looked it up, it's a variation of the kentucky kiss. our drink had either basil or mint muddled into it, but otherwise it's about the same. i think i'm going to whip us up some this weekend...
