Bourbon Special

Beachbum Berry describes the Bourbon Special as one of “three exotics for bourbon drinkers, all circa 1950s.” Opinions might vary as to how exotic it really seems, though it has classic tiki elements, and it certainly would’ve gone well enough with the atmosphere of fantasy and escape in one of Steve Crane’s Kon-Tiki restaurants for which it was created.

Bourbon Special
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz falernum
  • 3/4 oz ginger beer
  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • dash Angostura bitters
Shake with ice cubes. Pour unstrained into an old-fashioned glass.
