My Old Friend (Hotel Dusk: Room 215 Cocktail)
1 shot Bourbon
1 shot Wild Turkey American Honey
Stem of Mint
Directions: Pour over ice in a rocks glass. Add a few leaves of mint to the top.
Note: If you’re patient, I highly suggest infusing this drink with mint for a day or two. Just mix all the ingredients in a bottle and let it sit. The result is fantastic!
As correctly answered in the trivia question yesterday, Kyle Hyde, from Hotel Dusk: Room 215, starts every drinking night with a bourbon. In the bar scene, Louis starts him off with an 8-year-old double. In honor of Hyde, this drink is a double bourbon with a sweeter taste, thanks to the American Honey (yes, it has to be American Honey. Normal Wild Turkey won’t do). Though it may be simple, this is a drink Hyde would love.
