The Sugar Free Black Rose is a strong drink! It is highly recommended if you like the taste of bourbon whiskey. It is pretty minimal in preparation, with only the bourbon and some dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters and Grenadine, so I think picking the correct bourbon is crucial here.
We went with the Bulliet, since that is what we had in-house, but we’d be very interested to see how it comes out with other bourbon variations. We found ours to be a little on the bitters side, but maybe with a different bourbon, it might turn out different.
Try it out and let us know what bourbon you used and how well it came out!
