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) Ingredients:
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.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
