As I am new to bourbon, I always ask what the bartender recommends (for both the bourbon and how its prepared). Most often, they recommend a style that they call "twice up" or "Mizuwari".
"Mizuwari" seems to be about 1/4 bourbon, 3/4 water on the rocks in a tall glass. Can anyone tell me what this is called in the States? In my opinion, this is nice, but is too diluted for my preference.
"Twice Up" seems to be is 1/2 bourbon and 1/2 water on the rocks. Is this manner of drinking bourbon common in the States? Do you call it "twice up" back home as well. I seem to like this manner of drinking the best
(I dont yet have enough hair on my chest to drink bourbon neat).
