Our newest cocktail, the Bitter Southerner No. 8, looks ambitious at first glance. It contains the zing of lemon finely blended with notes of ginger, lemongrass, and allspice, the high-proof bourbon that gives it a kick, topped with the earthy sweetness of sorghum. One might be inclined to think it's out of reach for folks who just want to sit on the porch and sip.
The cocktail's creator, Gary Crunkleton, is a professional. And yes, he has an entire bar named after him, stocked with all the tools he might need to make any number of fascinating and delicious drinks. But hear us out – you can make Gary's BS No. 8 cocktail (and any of the others in our cocktail series) at home without leasing and licensing your own bar. All you need is our bar-tool kit for just $24.
