  • Makes one drink...(a REALLY good one)
Author Notes

"Perfecting" this drink was fun, as it required QUITE a bit of "tasting". Parts of the process are vague...however, I DO remember this: the end result was wonderful! A "Bourbonite's" dream!
(Note: I adapted this recipe from one shared with me by a friend. I think she came across the original recipe from a distiller...not sure which one.) —Chef Roman

  • 1.5 ounces Bourbon
  • 1 ounce Freshly squeezed/strained lemon juice
