Texas Two Lane, bourbon cocktail

Do not confuse this drink with the previously posted Texas Two Step. This cocktail name refers to the way some Lone Star state drivers drive. Here’s how it works: The sudden break to exit must be made while traveling at no less than 60 m.p.h., at least 2 lanes to the left, and no more than 50 yards from the freeway exit. No turn signals permitted. While this is a violation of the state’s traffic codes, and possibly God’s laws, its use is easily explained: “It’s Texas, son, and man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.”

Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir to combine. Strain over ice into a lowball glass. Garnish with a peel of Texas Ruby Red grapefruit.

Tasting notes: Grapefruit balances the liqueur, adding pepper to the craft whiskey.
