We went to a relatively new place called the Hungry Mother - southern style cooking that was wonderful - a different take on everything but well worth the trip.

The highlight of the evening was the small but excellent bar with very nice bourbons and ryes.

I usually have my bourbon neat or on ice but here are two mixed drinks that were well worth it.

A twist on an old fashioned - Old Overholt Rye, 10 year tawny port, maple syrup and bitters

The Motorgucci (supposedly only mixed at a few places) Equal parts Bookers and Punt e Mes (an Italian bitter vermouth)

Now I have to buy some Punt e Mes for my liquor cabinet.
