Confessions of a Mixologist: Minneapolis Hustler
The taste of bourbon is a bit too austere for some. Fret not; there are some wonderful cocktails that can soften it up a bit. One such example is the Minneapolis Hustler. I came across this gem on one of my favorite mixology websites, Cocktail DB. This cocktail has much in common with a classic cocktail from years past known as the Oriental Cocktail. It's an interesting mix of citrus, sweet and sour with a touch of subtle herbaceousness to boot.
