Soap Box Racer: Michter's Rye, Old Forester Bottled in Bond Bourbon, Czech Fernet, Buckwheat, Dandelion Root Tincture. I generally don't like cocktails with twee ingredients like buckwheat and dandelion-root tincture, and I actually have no idea what those two might taste like alone. But when I mixed up a version of the drink at home without them, it was just a boozy mess. So I guess they -- or maybe some similar-tasting, less obscure alternatives -- are necessary. Bartender said that this is now his canonical example of a spirit-forward whiskey drink. I still think the Old Fashioned serves that purpose pretty well, but this cocktail is tasty and I'd order it again.
