Sweet Lucy: Pritchard's you got some splainin' to do

I shouldn't complain when something is exactly as they describe it on the bottle.

"Born in a duck blind and a frequent companion on duck hunts, variations of Sweet Lucy were generally homemade elixirs of peaches, oranges and apricots with lots of sugar and whiskey."

In other words, it's ridiculously sweet.  If you want bourbon, with a hint of fruit, like I was hoping for, then you'll be out of luck.  It can be salvaged by using it as a mixer with real liquor.  Hold the duck.

The Ethel Mertz cocktail:
1 shot Sweet Lucy
2 shots Bourbon
1/2 shot Cocci Americano
Lots of ice
