I really do enjoy bourbon. Years ago I wouldn't touch it, but as whiskeys got trendy they became more available and used in a lot more mixed drinks to appease almost all palettes. My favorite bourbon drink is by far this one from Summer House restaurant in Bethesda.
HOOTENANY - bourbon, lemon, rhubarb bitters, muddled blackberry - 11.95
Although, Duke's Grocery in Dupont has an awesome Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade as well.
Bonus! Bourbon is GOOD for you!! (within reason, of course)
