This one was named after a band that my business partner, Tony Figoli was in a long time ago. I thought the name was absolutely brilliant, so I decided to do up a drink to commemorate the band – and my favorite spirit at the time.
I think the creme de cassis really works well with the sour component of this drink, and who can beat American whiskey on a warm spring evening?
Update: Our friends over at The Educated Barfly just released a great instructional video about the Bourbon Renewal, and you can see it below!
