Drink: KC Sour
From: The Drop Bistro
Located at Martini Corner, this upscale bistro is both casual and comfortable. The Drop, along with having a small patio, lovely bar, and comfortable seating, plays a brilliant playlist. They have Happy Hour Monday – Friday 3pm – 7pm and again from 10pm – Close with both food and drink specials, and a “Drink of the Moment” available.
I almost went for the Red Wine Martini, since the bar has a wide selection of wines and I was intrigued by the combination of wine and martinis, but when I saw the KC Sour featuring Dark Horse bourbon I had to have it.
The drink: sour, tart, cold, spicy.
Made with Dark Horse bourbon, lemon, and red wine, this cocktail is sour without being too sweet or sugary, and the spiciness from the bourbon blends well with the red wine while the lemon adds a lightness and keeps it from feeling heavy.
