    Not into absinthe but I like mint juleps a lot. Old fashioneds are good too.

    2 ounces Rye whiskey
    Three dashes Peychaud's Bitters
    One sugar cube or 1 tsp simple syrup
    Splash of absinthe or Herbsaint

    Not really an absinthe drink, but an accoutrement. Last night I had one, and the bartender mixed a half shot of absinthe with water and ice into a glass, then stirred the rye with the syrup and bitters, poured out the absinthe, and poured in the whiskey. Was pretty awesome.

    I love bars that serve good cocktails. I used to drink whiskey straight, but a good mix opens up so many more flavors, when done right of course.

    I know, I've had them. Still not my favorite but not bad either.

    fair enough. A julep takes too much away from the whiskey IMHO. Fun on a hot summer day though. Not sure whether or not I've ever had an old fashioned though.

    Got a bottle of Makers Mark for Christmas. I don't know much about whiskey, but it's pretty delicious.

    My Mom put a bottle of Makers Mark and a flask in my stocking this year. It's like she knows something...

    Makers Mark is OK but there are way better options for the money. Bullet is one fine example.
