The Teddy

How many entendres can you fit in one cocktail?
2 oz Bourbon, Wild Turkey (MUST be 100+ Proof; Old Grand-Dad also acceptable)
2 oz Bitter lemon soda, Polar
34 oz Crème de Noyaux, Bols
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
2 ds Orange bitters, Fee Brothers Orange
1 cube Sugar, Domino
Shake 15-20 seconds. Pour over tumbler-full of ice. Garnish with Luxardo cherry.
That special golf weekend deserves a drink for the late afternoons to carry through dinner and enter the evening.

I'm confused by some of this

I'm confused by some of this recipe being in parts and the other in measurements. I.e., if I use 1 oz each of Bourbon and BItter lemon, do I use 2 ds of each of the bitters? If I use 2 oz each, do I use 4 ds?

I agree - I hate part drinks.

I agree - I hate part drinks. So.... instead of 1 part bourbon and lemon soda and 3 dashes of creme de noyaux, I converted this to ounces and removed the rather sexist note.  Thanks,  Zachary

I'm amazed this has such high

I'm amazed this has such high ratings. The directions don't make a lot of sense to begin with - has anyone actually shaken 2 oz of carbonated bitter lemon soda?

I did away with the sugar cube and stirred this drink with a bit of simple. It didn't need it. I used Tempus Fugit Noyaux and Fever Tree Bitter lemon. Perhaps TF noyaux is very different from Bols, but I found the Noyaux clashed severely with the bitter lemon. Threw out most of it.
