"This is a drink best enjoyed while listening to the blues or contemplating life and the eventual arrival of death," says Ramblin' Rascal Tavern co-owner Charlie Lehmann. "It separates the strong from the weak and sparks intellectual rants. Probably not suitable for the staff Christmas party is all I'm sayin'." The friendliest rowdy bar in Sydney, the Rascal also happens to be conveniently located immediately under GT HQ. We'll see you there for a ramble and a rant or two.

Shake 60ml Bourbon (the Rascals use Booker's), 10ml sugar syrup, two dashes of barrel-aged bitters over chipped ice, double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a whiskey-soaked cherry and serve.
