The Brooklyn Eagle gets a really nice colour from all that bourbon. Yes you are reading it correct, this is a 4,5 oz recipe with a whopping 2 oz of bourbon in it!
Thankfully we had a large enough glass available. The good thing about the cocktail being so big is that it's actually a really delicious drink so being able to sip it for a long while is only nice. Also if you shake it long and hard enough there is the chance of a delicate foam forming on top of the cocktail, thanks to all that lime juice in the recipe.
What's great about this recipe is that it doesn't call for any “unusual” bottles or other ingredients. Even if your home bar isn't very well stocked chances are you'll be able to shake this cocktail at home.
2 oz bourbon
