Baker’s Bourbon. I was browsing some cocktail-related websites one day and came across this drink. It sounded so good, and luckily I was not disappointed. An excellent Bourbon sour in its own right, the inclusion of rosemary is a lovely touch. I ordered a second one with a touch more maple syrup and it got even better.
