The Southerly

Bourbon, lime, and ginger beer combine in this refreshing and light cocktail. Make sure to use a good quality bourbon and ginger beer, not ginger ale, for the best results. The drink is sweetened with agave syrup, which is a shelf-stable sweetener which you can find at grocery stores. I keep a bottle on hand for mixing drinks, as it dissolves easily and removes a step, however, if you’d prefer, you may use simple syrup. Just mix equal parts sugar and water over heat until the sugar dissolves, then let cool before using.
