    BT White Dog Cocktails

    Anybody got any?

    I bought a bottle of this stuff as part of my learning experience, trying to get a feel of what whiskey tastes like straight off the still. Plus it's a pretty good conversation starter and overall a pretty unique product. However I foresee this stuff lasting forever since I can only manage to get down a few sips at a time.

    I was able to find one cocktail online but haven't yet tried it, so anybody got anything else?

    A bar in Portland Uses House Spirits unaged rye to make what it calls the O'Harry, which is described as "a modern Manhattan of sorts, with a mixture of sweet Italian vermouth and house-made grenadine rendered from fresh pomegranates."

    Exact proportions are not given, but perhaps one could experiment. You might want to substitute pomegranate liqueur for the house-made syrup.

    You can put white dog on your pop corn, just like at the movies!

    Re: BT White Dog Cocktails

    I like this simple variation on a whiskey sour:
    two parts White Dog
    one part Gran Gala (or Cointreau)
    one part lemon juice.

    Shake with ice and serve up. A lemon twist and lightly sugared rim is a nice addition.

    That's gotta be a reference to something, but I have no idea what...

    Not a cocktail, but I added a bit of BT White Dog to some Stranahan's. It was quite drinkable.

    Is that gin 'n' juice for athletes?
    Our local footballers found that cough syrup and kool-aid didn't work out so well. Maybe the Orange Dog beats the Purple Drank.

    Being one of the few lovers of unaged corn whiskey in these parts (or any others outside of Appalachia) I think the BT white dog would work well in applications like those Scott and Beakerboy mention.

    One of my favorite summer drinks is a Corn Whiskey Gimlet: Virginia Lightning with a squeeze from a big wedge of lime, garnished with said lime wedge. I would thing that the BTWD would do well this way diluted down to 90 or 100 proof.

    Re: BT White Dog Cocktails

    This is the most frequent one I've seen.

    White Manhattan:

    1 1/2 ounces white whiskey
    1/2 ounce Benedictine
    1/2 ounce blanc vermouth (not dry Vermouth)
    3 dashes orange bitters
