My husband would love all of these!
Love these!!! My father-in-law & hubby LOVE bourbon, so I’m definitely going to try out the Crusta this weekend when we’re all together :)
The Crusta is really good, Kristin. And I love the presentation; simple yet elegant at the same time.
Have fun making them, Erin!
You have the best drinks!
I feel like I should try all of them – for research purposes :)
Janelle, everything in the name of research! ;)
Thank you Jamie!
I think I’d like to try Magic Trace. It looks so good!
I’d love to hear what you think of it when you get a chance to try it, Alissa. I think orange juice and Benedictine play off each other so well as supporting elements in a recipe.
