“On a sunny patio, bourbon needs embellishment, by way of citrus, bright fruit, or perhaps a floral element,” explains Big Star’s Laurent Lebec. The bourbon-based Grievous Angel softens the hit of whiskey with a touch of St-Germain’s floral sweetness alongside strawberry syrup, and kicks everything up with the addition of bitters and citrus for refreshing brunch-ready fruit sour.
