The Roman

Michael has always loved bourbon and ginger ale; it’s been his go-to drink since we first met in 1986. Fast forward 36 years and he still loves bourbon and ginger ale, and he also loves Sam the cooking guy! Sam is a chef and restaurant owner out of California. We watch his YouTube channel almost every day and get inspiration for new meals. I recommend watching him, not only for good recipes, but also for entertainment! He’s so fun to watch!

Well one night he shared his favorite cocktail that was named after a dear friend who had passed away … Roman

We tried it that same evening and have enjoyed it on occasion ever since.

If you like bourbon, try it and let me know what you think!
