Bourbon

Kentucky Blizzard

I tripped over this one while perusing MadeMan.com & quickly figured it was worth a try. The cocktail kind of goes against my “classic” intuitions, but … the ingredients are all old-school, and I was thirsty. Thirst more than quenched, I sipped my next and found the drink to solidly hold its own against the 85 degree night and was easily able to compliment the Sammy Davis Jr. I had on the phonograph. Bourbon’s a good pal of mine, and he didn’t at all mind putting on some cranberry socks for the evening. Try it and trust me, this is a great patio cocktail.

Here we go –

  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • 1 ½ oz cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz grenadine
  • tsp. sugar

Shake with crushed ice until ice-cold in a shaker, pour into a double-old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a slice of orange.
