Joni,

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

Thanks,

Zachary

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!
