As promised, tonight's drink is a bit more, shall I say, "manly" in comparison to last night's drink. I really should have done some research and found a drink called "Boxers or Briefs" after last night's "Silk Panties." What would be in a drink like that do you suppose? The ingredients would have to consist of opposites... maybe a mixture of wine and whiskey.
This beverage was another one found in a flurry of activity at Adirondack Mountain Spirits yesterday, so the directions are not detailed at all.
2 oz. bourbon
1 oz. fresh lemon
dash simple syrup
Combine and stir.
To make simple syrup, use equal parts sugar and water. Bring the water to a boil. Stir in the sugar. Reduce heat to low and continue stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate.
As soon as I started making this drink I knew it was going to taste like a whiskey sour, and indeed it did. Not that it's a disappointment at all. We're big fans of bourbon in this house and this drink did not disappoint. Mike and I both give this drink a 7.5 due to it's somewhat mundane nature. We would both opt for the Kentucky Blizzard over this one for sure, but we also wouldn't turn it down if someone offered us one.
