Bitter Bastard

Last weekend the bar was open at the house.  It has been a while and I was in the mood to make some sweet cocktails.  After making the Citroen Sunset, I wanted to move to a sipping drink that had my favorite liquor in it.  Bourbon!  So I created a take on Bourbon Ginger and made the bitter bastard.  I am a tad bit biased, especially since I love bourbon so much.  So I made one for Robb and he said it was a hit.  So not only is it good, it is Robb approved!

The Bitter Bastard

Fill a rocks glass with ice.

Add the Bourbon, 2 dashes of bitters and freshly squeezed lime juice.  Stir.

The Bitter Bastard

Top off with the ginger-ale and serve with a lime or orange wedge for garnish.

The perfect sipping drink

This drink is excellent.  It has similar notes to a bourbon ginger, but also has the added complexity that the bitters and lime juice bring to the table.  It is a great sipping drink.
