Lion’s Tail

Derived from the saying “twisting the lion’s tail,” a reference to the American provocation of the British, the Lion’s Tail is a perhaps forgotten cocktail that we’re very glad is back in the mix. With aromatic ingredients that work hand-in-hand with the bourbon, you certainly won’t regret giving this Lion’s Tail a twist.
