You look like a person who could use two nice cocktails. How about these two?
The Babancourt Sazerac
2 oz Rhum Barbancourt 8 (or 5)
1/2 oz simple syrup
6 dashes Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas bitters
Herbsaint rinse – rinse the serving glass with Herbsaint (we used a mist ofTaboo Absinthe)
Add everything into a mixing glass, adding ice and stir. Strain into a chilled glass and finish with twisting a lemon peel above the glass to let the oils come out and if you wish also rinse the rim with the peel.
Super easy and outrageously good!
1 oz Sazerac Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz Oloroso Sherry
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters
1 dash Bittermens Tiki Bitters (we used Jerry Thomas's Bitters)
Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass pre-rinsed with Herbsaint (we used a mist of Taboo Absinthe), and garnish with an orange twist.
Yummy! Just make sure you use a nice pineapple syrup. Either make your own or buy a fresh bottle.
Try 'em both and leave a comment! Cheers!
