Happy 4th!


                                                           Time For a Change

This cocktail was created by bartenders in Washington D.C.; somewhat patriotic and, given your personal political views, appropriate for July 4th or… the next election. 

But, politics aside, it’s a great, refreshing drink that has an air of creativity without using exotic ingredients that you have to hunt for.


    • 2 1/2 parts Jim Beam Black Bourbon
    • 1/4 part DeKuyper Triple Sec
    • 1/2 part fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 part blueberry juice
    • 1/2 part lavender honey simple syrup
    • dash of orange bitters
    • super-fine sugar for rimming



  1. Rim a cocktail glass with sugar.
  2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into a cocktail glass


Have a wonderful July 4th and, please, if you indulge, let someone else,  who has not…do the driving!
