Here is a real good and unique Bourbon cocktail from our friend Rod. We also tested this on another friend named Rod, and he liked it as well.
2 parts bourbon.
1 part Domaine De Canton, which is a ginger liqueur.
Couple drops of bitter, squeeze of lemon wedge.
Add a pinch of cayenne pepper, stir and add ice.
The ginger gives it a sweet taste upfront, followed by the punch of the Bourbon and finally a little lingering heat from the pepper.
You can try this with ginger beer as well, or swap out the ginger with some Triple Sec.
On a side note, I would not use a very expensive Bourbon for this drink.
