After sampling Mitcher’s Small Batch Bourbon solo, we had a change to try it in a different avatar – an exceedingly good Sazerac… so good that a few even had a repeat!
- 2 1/2 oz. Mitcher’s small batch bourbon whisky
- 1 sugar cube
- 2 dashes bitters
- Lemon peel
- Old-fashioned glass
- In an Old-Fashioned glass, muddle a sugar cube with a few drops of water.
- Add several small ice cubes and the whiskey and bitters.
- Stir well and strain into a second, chilled, Old-Fashioned glass in which you have rolled around a few drops of absinthe until its inside is thoroughly coated, pouring off the excess.
- Garnish with a twist of lemon peel
The quality of the absinthe makes all the difference. In our case, we had a Czech absinthe – Bairnsfather;’s Reality Absinth – that was truly exceptional.
Our Bourbon trio included:
- FEW Bourbon 46.5% was the base for a rather delicious Manhattan
- Mitcher’s Small Batch 45.7% morphed into a marvellous Sazerac
- Cleveland Underground AP Bourbon Whiskey finished with Apple Wood, Batch 3, 45% frothed into a twist on a whiskey sour
