Perhaps Timothy (barturtle) can help me out here, but in floundering around tonight in search of something different to drink, I happened upon a quite pleasant cocktail:
<ul type="square">[*]1-1/2 to 2 ounces blended Scotch (in this case, Cutty Sark) [*]3-4 ounces ginger ale (Canadian Club here)[*]a couple of marischino cherries[/list]
It was quite enjoyable, if simple, and has two things to recommend it -- it used up some of my blended Scotch , and DIDN'T use up any of my bourbon .
