The Pussycat was a cocktail created by Early Times as an instant mixer for their bourbon. It's a sour variant, but it was so much more. Mixing bourbon and sweet and sour doesn't even come close to the miracle of the Pussycat. They even sold Pussycat glasses which were short but tapered, with a short stem. The glass was an excellent marketing coup because it separated the Pussycat from just any "sour" and made it elegant, without looking feminine (short stem, not long, angles and not curves). Anyone could enjoy a Pussycat, and any home bartender could look good making one perfect every time, thanks to the instant drink mix. Alas, the Instant Pussycat is gone leaving us with only memories. Or is it?
