The Kentucky Honey Trap...

Here's another cocktail that I've been pouring for quite a while now: The Kentucky Honey Trap. It's essentially a bourbon-based Rusty Nail (Scotch and Drambuie) and may be enjoyed in either a "Kentucky" or "Tennessee" version.

The Kentucky Honey Trap...
~  In a rock glass, toss in one or two ice cubes (for top-shelf bourbon), more for mixing bourbon.
~ Pour 1 1/2 or 2 ounces of bourbon.
~ Add about 1/2 ounce of Wild Turkey American Honey bourbon liqueur.

Like the Rusty Nail, the proportions of the two ingredients are approximate. Some people like it as high as 50-50 (very sweet); I prefer 3/4 - 1/4 mix for good bourbon, maybe 2/3 - 1/3 for everything else. 

The Tennessee Honey Trap...
~ In a rock glass, toss in your ice.
~ Pour 1 1/2 or two ounces of Jack Daniels or George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky.
~ Add about 1/2 ounce of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey.
