Conne's favorite recipe: Step 1 - pour 1.5 oz of bourbon in a glass Step 2 - add 5 more oz of bourbon to the same glass Step 3 - drink Repeat as necessary. But seriously, try taking very small sips of it by itself or on the rocks. +1 nothing better. Try Buffalo Trace, Basil Haydens, Eagle Creek for sipping. Get something cheap if you are mixing (b/c what's the point?) Jim Beam, Jack, etc. Bourbon + ginger ale (but not vernors b/c that is piss), Old Fashioned, or Manhattan. +1 on the whiskey stones as well.
