2 oz Bourbon (Four Roses Yellow)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Peach Liqueur (Edmond Briottet Crème de Peche de Vigne)
1/2 oz Honey Syrup

Stir in a Collins glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel and a mint sprig (in article photo, not written recipe).

Two Saturdays ago, I decided to make good use of my new mint crop that returned for another season and make the Democrat that I spotted in an Eater article. The Prizefighter's Jon Santer created the Democrat while at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco midway through reading a Harry Truman biography. Truman was a big fan of Bourbon cocktails, and Santer kept the Southern theme with peaches and lemonade.
The Democrat began with a lemon and mint aroma. The lemon continued on into the sip where it mingle with the honey notes, and the swallow offered Bourbon, floral, peach, and vanilla flavors.
