The Friday Cocktail - Bourbonaise

Bourbonaise, originally uploaded by Experiment 33.

I would never have thought to put these ingredients together, but if it's good enough for Playboy's Bar Guide from 1971 I figured it was worth a shot. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise, with a good blend of sweet, sour, and bourbon.

1 1/2 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/4 oz creme de casis
1/4 oz lemon juice

Stir in old fasioned glass filled with ice. I suggest starting with this mix and adjusting to taste depending on the tartness of your lemon juice. I added an extra splash of creme de casis and found it mellowed the drink out perfectly .
