November 11, Veterans Day, Part 1

Part 1 of a two-drink report for today. My first recipe from my calendar is the one for today: roughly equal parts bourbon and OJ, with a splash (1/2 oz) of Benedictine. I used Jack Daniels Black.

Not a bad cocktail, and you get your vitamin C. I even stirred (not shook) it in my new Maker's Mark mixing glass and strained it, as instructed. I'm a Benedictine fan, which brings nice flavor to the drink. But if you didn't eat much lunch, like I didn't, this may knock you on your ass. Time for a nap.
