    Re: What do you do when you're in a bourbon rut?

    When I'm in a bourbon rut I simply read Squire's posts in the "What Bourbon are you drinking today?" thread, and I soon realize there are ruts, and then there are canyons. I begin feeling better immediately!!

    Glad to be of service Joe . . . having reached Bourbon Nirvana I should extend a helping hand.

    I go to a Manhattan if nothing on the shelf jumps out at me. Another strategy is to go for the bottle you're most disappointed with. Sometimes the low expectation helps. Even if not, it will improve your next pour.

    Haha, touche.

    Squire's posts about Barton cocktails make me jealous --- can't get that brand around here (without special order, anyway).

    Likewise here, and his devotion to the brand has me extremely curious about that juice.

    Thanks, Squire. As you know, just playin'. Like I said to you a couple of months ago, we should all be so lucky to one day experience your blissful contentment.

    A whiskey sour is a nice change: 2 oz bourbon, 1oz simple strip, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 1/2 egg white. Whisk all except bourbon with a milk frothier, add bourbon and ice to the shaker, and shake! I usually have to make 2of these for someone who's not had one before!
