    Re: Bourbon and cola

    I had a WTRR90 and Pepsi the other night. I wanted a drink and a caffiene boost at the same time. We were going dancing. It did the job, but I thought it was kind of sickly sweet like cough syrup.

    My GF likes JB white label and diet Dr. Pepper a lot. It's not my favorite, but I like my bourbon neat. It's not bad, just not my drink of choice.

    My wife loves Dr. Pepper, but won't try any of my bourbon. While I haven't heard of this combination, maybe it's way to get her to give some a chance. Yeah, right. And Elijah Craig is coming over to my house for a nightcap.

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    Another vote for Mexican/Throwback/Jones real-sugar Cola with whiskey. I distinctly remember the switch from Old Coke to New Coke to Coke Classic--I switched to Diet Coke around that time, because Coke Classic seemed to leave an aftertaste that the Old Coke did not.

    Anyway, sugar-sweetened cola has wound up being a luxury item, so it seems less demeaning to a good bourbon than it maybe should. I mix it 50/50 with either the commodity bourbon on hand, or one that I just don't like neat or OTR. I sometimes prefer it over a Sazerac, but I think that's just because I must have bought slightly oversized sugarcubes.

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    Started out just drinking bourbon and coke then moved up to neat/on the rocks. I still go back every now and then for convenience sake.

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    I don't mix anything with Coke unless it's Mexican Coke which is cane sugar based.

    I rarely catch myself drinking soda cause it's all corn syrup fructose which I don't care for the taste.

    I love me Mexican bottled Coca Cola! SWEET CANE SUGAR BABY! BRING IT!

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    I've yet to try corn syrup coke, I'm guessing its awful going by the comments on this thread?
    The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    I prefer burbon neat or on the rocks, but I also like bourbon and gingerale. I can accept bourbon and Sprite or 7UP (but not Sierra Mist), but the only alcohol I like in a cola is rum.
