Well, what better way to do it than with a refreshing southern cocktail?
Whether you were born and bred with southern nature in your blood, or you just want to try something new and awesome - you can’t go wrong with a southern cocktail.
So today, we’ll give you 4 southern cocktails that every southerner loves!
1. Whiskey Sour
The whiskey sour is one of our all-time favorites.
It’s a basic combination of bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and one small egg white. The result? A delicious, foamy southern drink that’s perfect for both winter and summer months.
The key is the egg white. You need just the right amount to create a little foamy cover at the top.

2. Shoo-Fly Punch
This a spicy but refreshing cocktail that just about every southerner loves!
It’s a combination of ginger beer, bourbon, lemon, and orange (along with some other tasty ingredients). And it’s so darn good that you might not even care if those summer flies bother you!

The Classic Mint Julep may as well be the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby - in fact over 120,000 Mint Juleps are served over the 2-day period of Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby weekend at Churchill Downs Racetrack!
This combination of fresh mint and bourbon is the perfect way to kick off the summer months. It’s refreshing and delicious, and it’s really no surprise why so many people over at the Kentucky Derby love to drink it!
