Hot Bourbon, Tapas Adela( Kenneth K. Lam/Baltimore Sun / February 15, 2012 )
How to Make a Hot Bourbon
1 jalapeno (4 slices)
Jalapeno simple syrup
11/2 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
1 oz. Tamarind juice
1/2 oz. club soda
Muddle jalapeno and simple syrup together in a glass; add ice. Pour Bulleit Bourbon and Tamarind juice together, stir; top with club soda.
The hot bourbon is perfect for warming up a cold night in Fell's Point. Tapas Adela's manager Neil Dundee and bartender Jay Calvert came up with it on a whim. "We took as many fresh ingredients, lined them up across the bar and after five hours we came up with this. We wanted to make a Manhattan that wasn't a Manhattan."
