* 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
* 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
* 2 dashes orange bitters
* Splash of simple syrup
* Lemon twist for garnish
Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until cold and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
Like the Mark Twain cocktail, I think this one could use a slightly increased amount of whiskey. Maybe it’s just me though; while I think both of these are a bit too lemony, Sarai thinks they’re fine the way they are.
This one is for Kevin, who I mentioned it to the other day, and for Lauren, who’s looking for more good bourbon cocktails.
