Bourbon-berry smash: A cocktail for a cookout

Erica Sagon

Chances are you've got a cookout in your future for Memorial Day weekend. Before you fire up the grill, make this Bourbon-Berry Smash, an easy-drinking cocktail from Cardinal's bar manager Logan Hunter.

Bourbon-based cocktails are perfect with grilled and barbecued meals. Add a couple of favorite summer flavors — strawberries and mint — and splash in prosecco for a lovely bit of fizz, and you've got a most pleasant drink to sip outside.
