Take A Boozy Sip Of Nostalgia With Orange Kool-Aid And Bourbon
For a nostalgic cocktail, mix bourbon with orange Kool-Aid. While it may seem like an odd pairing, one of the most common tasting notes in bourbon is the acidic tang of fruit.
This makes orange Kool-Aid a natural match for bourbon, especially considering the sugariness of Kool-Aid, which provides a similar effect to that of simple syrup.
Luxurious bourbons tend to have subtle, complex characteristics that will get lost underneath the punchy flavor of the Kool-Aid, so opt for a straightforward, everyday bourbon.
