Lynchburg Lemonade

January 28, 2011 (Day 363) — Lynchburg Lemonade

If you swung by to jaw a bit earlier today, you would have seen my more in-depth review of the Most Wanted Pioneer Whiskey, an interesting little whiskey concoction from the other side of my fair state.

Atchison is also home to one of the state's most well-known haunted houses.

For those who missed it, or won’t go back and take a look at it until AFTER reading this evening’s cocktail, the summation was that for a little-known whiskey maker with no pedigree, it was actually pretty solid and tasty, especially on the rocks with a dash of water. This lead me to believe that this sweet, burning whiskey would be great for cocktails when you don’t want to sacrifice a higher-quality whiskey for a base spirit.

So, with Most Wanted’s pedigree (assumed or not) it seemed fitting to make an Old West-ish cocktail.

Lynchburg Lemonade

4 oz Most Wanted Pioneer Whiskey

2 oz sweet/sour mix

2 oz triple sec

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled with ice, mix well, and serve.

I was right. This is a good whiskey for base spirits. Even with 4 oz bourbon in there, it blends into the background, but really adds a nice boost on the end. Sweet, and more of a summer drink, but with it topping 70 degrees today in western Kansas, it was perfect for a quick relaxing nip before heading off to rehearsal.
