Yardbird Southern Table & Bar’s Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

It was nominated for a James Beard Award and was named “Best New Restaurant” by Bon Appétit, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar serves up inventive takes on classic Southern goodness and has locations in Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Singapore – with locations coming soon in Dallas and Washington, D.C.!

Yardbird boasts a seriously impressive bourbon list (check it out here), which gives them a well-earned spot on our Bourbon Review Best Bourbon Bars list! They’re menu also includes fun bourbon flights and cocktails. One of our favorite bourbon cocktails, for a hot summer day like today, is this Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade!
