Left-Lane Riders & Bourbon Sidecar

August 17, 2011

When I was in Drivers Ed a million or so years ago I was taught that when driving on the interstate, stay in the right lane unless passing a slower vehicle. Do they not teach this anymore?

What is the deal with people who get in the left lane & sit there refusing to move to the right for faster traffic to pass? Why don’t the police pull these inconsiderate jerks over & ticket them? Why don’t I still drive a big Suburban so I could tailgate them & very plainly intimidate them to get the heck out of my way? It is impossible to intimidate anyone driving a Prius! I hate that!

Too much travel on I-40 between Memphis & Nashville of late.

Bourbon Sidecar

Something soothing after a long trip with the trucks on I-40… Citrusy & light, I have made this using Southern Comfort, too.


  • 1 1/2 ounces (1 shot or jigger) good Kentucky Bourbon
  • 3/4 ounce Cointreau or Gran Marnier
  • 3/4 ounce fresh Lemon Juice
  • Orange Peel for garnish


  1. Shake all ingredients with ice & strain into a chilled cocktail glass with a sugared rim.
  2. Garnish with an orange peel.
