It’s well after 5, finally. Today I decided to try a new cocktail. I found the recipe in the current (March 2007) issue of Food & Wine magazine. Do you like vanilla? Do you like bourbon? (I’m looking at you, Miss Lisanne!). Then this is for you. I couldn’t find a lemon since the boys were tossing it around like a ball earlier this afternoon, so I had to do without a garnish. Though in hindsight, I could have thrown a marachino cherry in there. Anyway… The recipe:
1.5 oz. Bianco vermouth
1.5 oz. bourbon (I used Maker’s Mark)
Fill pint glass 2/3 with ice. Add vermouth and bourbon. Stir. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
