Just tried the Eastern Sour with a local Florida whiskey. Not bad at all. A whiskey sour is one of my favorite drinks made with Bourbon. I'm about to give the Eastern Sour a try with Bulleit Bourbon. Love me some Bulleit.

A Mai Tai variation with whiskey and/or rye like the Bluegrass Mai Tai from Smuggler's Cove that was featured on the Cocktail Virgin blog a while back is an excellent change of pace.

The Eastern Sour with Bulleit is where it's at.

Bulleit is good stuff and I have some on-hand, this may well be this evening's nightcap.

I can believe a Painkiller would work out well - I think Pussers has got a scotch like aftertaste.
So has Woods 100 & I've only tried a little bit of Lemon Hart 80 but it was also there IMO.

Careful there Flipper, that smacks of heresy here



I agree! Id go my own way & make new drinks.

Try:

Tikify a milk punch with pimento dram (like a milky Lions Tail or spicy Egg Nogg),
Tikify a Southern Bourbon Punch with a Caribbean tea like lemon & ginger, ginger & mint, cerassie or sorrel (for flavour combos try
http://www.dalgetyherbalteas.com/ )

Things I made myself:

Bumbo Grog.
1 part honey mix, 1/2 lime (or any citrus), 1 water, shake of nutmeg & cinnammon, add some alcohol. Shaken with big ice cubes.
That's how I drink my Pussers. I can believe ships went out from Europe with whatever was on hand (so its open to experimentation).

Dodo
1/2 part falernum, 2 prune juice, 1 lime, bitters, add some alcohol. Blended.
I wanted to make a cocktail called a 'Dodo' - the main point being the use of liquor with a bird in the title (Famous Grouse, Wild Turkey) & prunes because you cook game with them... tikified! I ended up using Cockspur, it has a cock on the bottle don't ya know
