    Man, I normally just go 100/0.

    Use Coke Zero. The sweetness of Coke without the calories.

    At least that's what my wife does.

    I've yet to try a bourbon and coke that way - makes sense to consume less calories when one can

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    A few others have mentioned this already, but I don't think Bourbon mixes well with Coke, close, but not quite. I do, however, find that JD and Coke (only Coke, not Cola, Pepsi, or anything diet) complement each other very well. This is still one of my favorite cocktails.

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    When I drink Coke I tend to drink Diet Coke or Coke Zero, both of which I find very acceptable, but for mixing purposes the fake sugar versions just don't seem to work. I also agree that JD and Coke seem to have a particular affinity.

    Maybe because Lynchburg is only about 200 miles from Atlanta.

    Kinda of a sideways bourbon-and-Coke tonight -- I can't find a ginger beer around here, so have bought some ginger ale to try a makeshift rye-and-ginger. Best I can do without a trip to KY, it seems. Anyway, I don't particularly care for the ND Bourbon deLuxe (1978) I have open (remember, these are the folks who originally came up with Old Grand-Dad), which strikes me as heavy on the rye side. So, am mixing if with the ginger ale. Pretty good combo of spice and sweet.

    Just a few minutes ago, I had some Beam White&Coke on the rocks. I like this taste. JD&Coke is sweeter, but I enjoyed Beam White, too. BTW, I had it together with a slice of pizza and chips, and it was a good company. Bourbon with meal? Mixed with coke, yes! Bourbon&Coke might not be better than bourbon neat, but who says it's not better than "coke neat"-at least sometimes?

    Re: Bourbon and cola

    I drink bourbon & coke on occasion, but it's a thing of laziness when I just couldn't be bothered. Jack and Cola stubbies were good until they lowered them from 8% to 7% and now they are only 6%
    So I still often go for the Wild Turkey and Cola premix and it still comes in at 8%...don't need too many of those!
