    Re: New favorite cocktail

    Does this invite a somewhat lighter bourbon? And how much bitters do you add?

    Re: New favorite cocktail

    Just a few dashes of bitters. I've been using Peychauds. And I wouldn't necessarily say it works best with a lighter bourbon, rather, with one that needs a flavor enhancer. There are many that don't!
    To explain, my husband bought me a bourbon (mentioned in this thread) that I didn't really care for but also didn't want to hurt his feelings by ignoring. Perfect solution

    I also wanted to bump the "nasty old fashioned" thread off the index. No offense, but I was tired of seeing that title.

    Why bother? It gets bumped at least once a day anyway.

    Don't you have anything better to do?

    (yes, that was a rhetorical question )

    While the baby is sleeping, not really. That floor will eventually sweep itself, I'm sure.

    On a related note I just spent way too much time researching the Scheurbe grape today for a two paragraph blog entry.

    One local winery, High Pass, makes a fabulous dessert wine from that.
