Smokehouse Sour


Honey barbecue is the inspiration for this cocktail. It relies on two MurLarkey whiskies to lend it the signature barbecue flavors, but still requires a principal dose of bourbon to keep things from getting too intense. That's because the bacon smoked Smokhouse whiskey is very savory, but I still wanted vanilla and brown sugar flavors to permeate the smoke.

Otherwise, this is a very straightforward Sour, on the rocks as any barbecue fan would like his drinks so they don't spill on the picnic table's uneven planks. 

  • 1 oz. bourbon (Virginia Gentleman used)
  • 1/2 oz. MurLarkey honey whiskey 
  • 1/2 oz. MurLarkey Smokehouse whiskey
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • lemon wheel and maraschino cherry for garnish

Combine sugar, juice and spirits in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with the cherry and lemon slice.
