Tried it one day with gran marnier for domaine and leaving out the pomegranate juice
Just playing around one day at the bar, intrigued by this Domaine de Canton...wanted it to be pink, so I added pom juice...tastes good without it

Joni, Can you estimate how


Can you estimate how much a "splash" is? How spirit forward is this? Does the bourbon show in the drink?



For the lemon lime 1/4 oz, I

For the lemon lime 1/4 oz, I used a capful of pom juice and top off with ginger ale. I muddle the orange wedge with the lime and pom juice with some ice in the large shaker tin, add the spirits and shake, then por the whole thing in a cup, whatever room is left is filled with ginger ale. It has a bourbon flavor but its kinda sweet too. If you want the bourbon to show more just smash the ingredients lightly and you can even leave out the pom juice. I was trying to make it fruity and approachable. I certainly taste bourbon, but I'm not a huge bourbon fan so maybe that is it...I love this drink tho!!! The Gran marnier version is delicious too, I like it even though its a little tougher!
