Birch & Bourbon

Happy Monday everyone! It’s the new year, we’re returning to work, and we’re getting back into the swing of things today. Cheers to 2016!

This past weekend I was able to break out the amazing new lens, wireless remote and tripod Curtis gave me for Christmas for a fun photoshoot. And it just so happened that we have amazing friends who gave us these beautiful and tasty bottles of booze for the holidays that also just so happened to pair together perfectly! Photoshoot dreams coming true!

That gorgeous tall skinny bottle is from Hartford Flavor Company, a local place that sells the most beautiful flavored liqueurs! I’ve been lucky enough to sample them at some Hartford events, and with flavors like chai, rose, cucumber, lavender and birch – how can you go wrong??

After doing a little research on the Hartford Flavor Company’s website about recipes which used their birch liqueur, we settled on the simple and extremely tasty, Birch & Bourbon which we paired with our newly acquired Kings County Distillery bourbon.
