What Bitch, What? (Original Recipe)


This cocktail is a situational drink. The scene looks like this: It is a crowded bar and the "stick" bartenders taking the orders from the crowd are overwhelmed. It is also noisy and no one can hear each other. Amidst this there is the service bartender, madly muddling fruit for a cocktail that needs to go to a table. A woman approaches the service bartender in her attempt to circumvent the line to the bar and starts trying to shout over the din, maybe asking for what the service bartender is working on.

The service bartender adds the wrong ingredients to the drink in hand and gives it to the woman to get her to leave. Somewhere in the shouted conversation, the service bartender may have uttered the name of this drink.

  • 6 blueberries
  • 5 mint sprigs
  • 2 oz. bourbon (Ancient Age used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
