Bourbon cocktails to try

This one is called Apples to Oranges, because most people think it must contain those fruits. In fact, it's really cucumber and grapefruit!

(Makes one drink)
2 slices cucumber, plus 2-3 thinner slices for garnish
2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce grapefruit juice (preferably freshly squeezed)
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Dash of bitters (optional)

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cucumber slices. Add ice and all remaining ingredients except the cucumber garnish. Shake well. Strain into an ice-filled double-rocks glass and garnish with the thin cucumber slices.
