Yum Alert: Ginger Bourbon

Written by emilyc

Celebrate the lovely and exciting fact that it’s Friday with this new spin on a classic Manhattan! It’s just right for summer nights and is made with zero-cal, yet super flavorful, Polar Seltzer. Good-to-know tip: bourbon is best with lemon, not lime.


1 jigger of quality Bourbon

2 jiggers sweet vermouth

2 jigger Polar® Ginger Lemonade Seltzer

Dash of citrus bitters, such as Angostura orange

Garnish with blueberries

Pour the bourbon, vermouth and bitters over ice and stir vigorously (some say to never shake bourbon.) Finish with seltzer and drop in the blueberries
