Bourbon Lift


This creamy bourbon drink will lift your spirit.  The Bourbon Lift cocktail is equivalent of New York Egg Cream and it’s a fantastic brunch drink.






  • 1.5 ounce good quality bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce of heavy cream
  • 1/2 ounce of coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce of Almond orgeat
  • club soda

How to prepare The Bourbon Lift Cocktail:

Add all the ingredients except the club soda into a shaker and fill it up with ice.  Shake for ten seconds or so and double strain it into a Fizz glass.  Top it off with soda water by adding it from height of about 6 inches above the glass.  This will allow the foam to blow up from the head of the glass.  Let it sit for few seconds and add little more soda water to lift the head above the glass.
