Lift your Spirits

A rich and creamy drink for the darkest days of winter.

Bourbon Lift

  • 1½ ounces Jefferson VSB Bourbon
  • ½ ounce orgeat (almond syrup)
  • ½ ounce heavy cream
  • ½ ounce Kahlúa coffee liqueur
  • Soda water

Shake everything except soda water over ice in a shaker and strain into an 8-ounce Collins glass. Add the soda water while stirring the drink to achieve a good foamy head. After it sits for 20 seconds or so, add an ounce more soda water to lift the head above the glass. Serve with a spoon so you can eat the foam. —Dan Keyport, owner Dolce Vita Wine Shop in Chaska
