Atlanta, Ga., The Bourbon Bar

The Governor

2 oz             Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
½ oz           Turbinado syrup (brown sugar syrup)
3 dashes    Black walnut bitters
3 dashes    Orange bitters

Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice. Stir for roughly one minute, or until glass gets very cold to the touch. Strain over ice, preferably one large cube if you have one. Garnish by cutting a slice of orange peel, then hold a flame to the outside of the peel for a couple of seconds and then express the oils over the flame. This will create a bit of a flash as the oils from the caramelized peel ignite. Enjoy!
