Boldly Southern: Vivian Abbott Walker (of Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood) + Bourbon & Branch Water
Here’s the thing about this drink: it’s for long hot afternoons where there’s nothing in the world you could possibly do but sit on a porch and think and listen and think a bit more. It’s for reflecting and sipping and giving you distraction whilst the world lets you take it all in.
“The notes danced through the June air; Vivi could feel them dust her hair and shoulders. She could feel the notes enter her and settle deep into her bones.”
“Life is short, but it is wide. I learned that from Genevieve.”
Bourbon + Branch Water
Drink for revivification of the soul.
2 oz Bourbon Whiskey
4 oz Mineral Water or Spring Water
Pour your bourbon and water into a fancy highball glass. We like oddly shaped ice cubes, but serious ballers go with, well, balls of ice so things melt properly. Enjoy whatever you do and don’t forget to stir.
