I'm already thinking forward to the next Mixology Monday which is tweaks - changing a recipe around a bit.  I've got ideas for a variation on the Suffering Bastard, though remembering that the Suffering Bastard is also a tiki drink whose recipe I don't know.

But I couldn't resist making one today.  Mmm, mmm, good.

Today it's Jefferson bourbon, Bombay gin, and Fentiman's ginger beer.  The tingle means it's working.

I probably make this drink most often the Sunday after a long night.  What kind of drinks do y'all make?  The standard bloody mary?  Suffering bastard?  Bourbon and coke?  Something else?
