    E,
    why on earth would you waste Stagg in such a cocktail?

    My only thought is that lady's like to drink things that are expensive??? Otherwise, two parts of a lesser proof pour would suffice, do you agree? Might have to adjust the other ingredients a little.

    The Stagg gave it one hell of a depth. The Heavier bourbon (Even PH would work) adds the extra dimention you do not get with the other bourbons.

    I have a hard time believing that the Stagg can even have much of a presence under milk, grenadine, Frany, Chocolat and ice.

    Maybe, I'm just a cheap ass! Because, I don't even buy those bottles to sip on, much less mix with cordials.

    Re: A Drink for the Spouce: Pink Pom-Pom

    I had never mixed it before, but when I was making drinks we knew that the drink was missign some "meat". First thing in my mind was the Stagg, so I poured about 1 oz in.

    That did it. Went froma too sweet of a drink to a very mice balanced drink with the "meat" from the Stagg.

    Now, I do not plan on doing this anytime in the near future, but for the sake of science... it was a good experiment
