Miss Fisher’s Mystery Cocktail

I have never seen or heard of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, but apparently it was a drama series in Australia about a private detective in the 1920’s. I’m not fully sure how this cocktail is related to that show, but it sounded pretty interesting and we love bourbon drinks so I decided to give it a try.

This drink is mainly bourbon with some grand marnier, lemon, maple and strawberry preserves. I didn’t have strawberry preserves so I subbed some raspberry jam. I had some cacao nib bourbon we had purchased at Mystic Farm and Distillery, which is an awesome small distillery in Durham. If you live in NC, they have a great tasting/tour, and afterwards you can sit at their farm picnic tables trying out the drinks they make with their products. My husband and I had a pretty good time there, I will just say that. 🙂 I added a bit of that to this drink as well.

I’m always looking for a new twist on a strong bourbon cocktail and this one hit the mark. I like to make my cocktails a day ahead of time and put them in the freezer in a mason jar so that they are ice cold when we are ready to drink them.
