- 2 oz. bourbon (your pick - I went with Temperance Trader Bourbon since I've been meaning to finish off the bottle)
- 3/4 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice (feel free to dial this amount back depending on the sourness of your lemon)
- 1/2 oz. apricot brandy
- 1/4 oz. simple syrup ( used cinnamon simple syrup since I made a giant bottle a week ago)
- Orange peel for garnish
Combine everything in a Boston shaker with ice and shake until cold and properly diluted. Serve on the rocks in an old fashioned glass and garnish with a nice thickly cut orange peel.
The Baltimore Bang is a bourbon sour with some apricot brandy thrown in. It's jammy, it's tart and it has bourbon. It's simple and delicious. Throw on They Want My Soul, the latest release by Spoon, and you'll have a fine time. Enjoy.
