The Buster Brown

Well, this little gem is a bourbon based cocktail, but with a refreshing lemon twist to it.  It is very yummy.  I was first introduced to it at Zingerman’s Roadhouse in Ann Arbor, where they have quite a list of old style classic cocktails.  It is an easy one to make, and great on a warm summer night, sitting on the back porch!

1.5 oz bourbon
.5 oz lemon juice – you can kick this up to 1 oz if you like a fruitier taste
.5 oz simple syrup – this can be increased to 1 oz if you like a bit more sweetness
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until cold and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
