jenna haze

1 1/4 oz Drambuie
3/4 oz Fighting Cock Bourbon
1 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Amaretto
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a rocks glass, top with ice cubes, and garnish with an orange twist and a cherry.

After the Pumpkin Toddy, Tara convinced me to accompany her to J.M. Curley a few blocks away where bartender Kevin Mabry had a new Drambuie drink to showcase. Kevin's recipe was in rebuttal to Sam Gabrielli's tribute at Russell House Tavern to the American actress Taylor Rain.
Taylor Rain
• 1 1/2 oz Bacardi 8 Year Rum
• 3/4 oz Drambuie
• 1/2 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
• 1 oz Lime Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass containing fresh ice. Top with 1-2 oz ginger beer.
Keeping the theme of American filmstars going, Kevin named his Bourbon-Drambuie Sour after thespian Jenna Haze. Kevin mentioned that the original version lacked amaretto, but he found that a small amount added an extra dimension to the drink.

The orange peel and cherry garnish contributed greatly to the Sour's aroma. Next, a creamy lemon and honey sip was followed by Bourbon and amaretto on the swallow.

Of course you would use Fighting Cock with a Jenna Haze :)

Well, Ron de Jeremy Rum would be an equal candidate (although I haven't seen it being stocked at a bar yet).
