carrie nation

Unbeleiveably, there isn't a cocktail, or at least a well known cocktail, named after Carrie Nation, whose 'hatchetations' on Kansas bars helped spread the temperance movement.

"Hissssssssssssssssssssssssss!"

Obviously I am going to fix that and I am soliciting recipe suggestions. It should have a lot of booze. She called herself "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like" so maybe a take on the Bulldog (gin, orange juice, ginger ale) would be appropriate... but I am wide open.

Any other Kansas themed cocktail ideas are also encouraged.

Since Nation was born in Kentucky, there should clearly be bourbon involved. How about bourbon, OJ and ginger beer?

FYI, this blog is the second hit when one Googles "carrie nation" and cocktail.
