Speaking of classics, here’s an easy as fuck, straight forward classic cocktail thats friggin’ delish.
2 oz. Bourbon
.75 oz. Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp. Powdered Sugar
Shake and serve in a chilled sour glass.
Yes, powdered sugar. It’s called for quite a bit in Vic’s book, but almost always in the sours. It’s really good – obviously very sweet – so it doesn’t take much. It also seems to have no flavor at all, it just sweetens and enhances the existing flavors. The resulting cocktail is actually very mellow, not overly acidic… but don’t take my word for it.. go make one right now. I SAID MAKE ONE RIGHT FUCKING NOW.
