The Blind Rabbit Sour

The Blind Rabbit Sour

Whenever we try a new speakeasy, we typically start with an order from the menu. This time was no different. I started with the namesake drink, The Blind Rabbit sour: Four Roses yellow label bourbon, sweet vermouth, amaro, lemon juice, cane syrup, and egg white. Jason ordered the bacon-infused old fashioned.

Bartender’s Special aka “Granny’s Panties”

By now we’ve become acquainted with Phillip, the friendly bar tender, and the conversation we’ve had about spirits gives us the comfort to place the creativity of the next round in his hands. I told him that I liked ginger, lavender, basil and citrus and he went to work. Of course we had many laughs and jokes while he was making drinks and as a result, the one he made me is now affectionately called Granny’s panties. It was made with muddled ginger, watermelon, basil, a couple dashes of lavender bitters, bourbon , 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice and ¼ oz cane syrup. Creative genius served up, in a coupe! We had several other off-menu drinks.
