I prefer a dry manhattan (with dry vermouth instead of sweet). I haven't tried it with too many different bourbons, but if you're going with something a little more expensive, in my opinion I can say that Woodford Reserve is vastly better than Knob Creek in this one. Keep the maraschino cherry away from a dry manhattan. An olive makes for a better garnish for this version of the drink.

As long as it is good bourbon, of course. My favorite these days is probably Woodford Reserve. The cheapest I can do on the rocks is probably Jim Beam Black. Anything lower quality than that needs a mixer.

If you can't handle it straight, son, there's not a bit of shame in ordering an "Old Fashioned" ! It's all in the bitters & muddled sugar, young bartenders.

Cola can make the crappy stuff ( notice I didn't say cheap- cause some cheap bourbons beat the snot outta certain pricey ones) taste fine.

Only if you're in a hurry to get slurry.

A well made whiskey sour is up there with nirvana, but beware of cheap imitations !

Ice mellows the spirit, and there's a mysterious alchemy that happens while it melts that makes sipping your bourbon slowly a magical experience.

If it's good bourbon and you're a serious drinker, neat can't be beat.

A tasty and potent way to enjoy your bourbon. Don't forget the marischino garnish ! Not all bartenders make these well, sadly.

Eggnog can be very tasty and it's too rich to enjoy in warmer weather- so it's perfect for the winter holidays.
