Sure! It sounds like you're looking for a delightful cocktail featuring bourbon, but not the traditional Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Here's a great option for you: the "Warm N' Toasty" cocktail. This drink offers a cozy and comforting experience, perfect for those cooler days.

**Warm N' Toasty**
- Lemon Juice (7.5ml)
- Grenadine (7.5ml)
- Bourbon (60ml)

Instructions: Combined Bourbon, Lemon juice and grenadine then stir well. Fine strain into an Irish glass prefilled with almost hot water (about 70 mls). Finished with nutmeg grated over the top.

This cocktail beautifully blends the warm notes of lemon juice and grenadine with the rich, robust flavors of bourbon. It's served hot, making it an ideal companion for a cozy evening indoors or after a day out in the chill. The refreshing lemon provides a zesty zing, while the grenadine adds sweetness and depth, perfectly balancing the bourbon’s strength. The "Warm N' Toasty" will definitely warm your spirits!
