RATING: 4 stars
There were 4 of us, and 2 gave it a 4 -- those are the bourbon drinkers. For me, it was a 2 1/2 until a little more cranberry went in, but the lemon was perfect. For my husband, it was a 3 1/2, but he rarely drinks bourbon. So we were going with a 4, since the bourbon drinkers were the fans -- that seems fair. It is pretty boozy, so if you don't like to taste too much alcohol, you'll want to up the fruit and simple syrup.
