Mixology Monday One Oh Eight: Swizzles
Plug in your tube amplifier. Let it warm up. Open your tweed Fender case. Take a deep breath. Polish up your Tele. Put on your brass finger picks. Dial up a clean sound, mostly. A little dirt is okay. Maybe just a little. Play ZZ Top's Enjoy And Get It On.
Now, drink that!
Oh, you can't? Well, drink this:
Q. Bakula Swizzle
2 oz lime juice
0.5 oz simple syrup
1 oz orange juice
1 oz Myers’s rum
1 oz Lemon Hart rum
0.5 oz 151 rum
1 dash Angostura bitters
6 drops Absinthe
Build in a pilsner glass, fill with crushed ice. Swizzle to mix and chill. Top with a few more dashes of Angostura Peychaud's bitters. Garnish with mint and a ceylon stick. A straw would be helpful.
Now imagine this is the soundtrack to a Tarantino re-imagining of Quantum Leap. You get the idea...
Many thanks to Fred for this whimsical theme and for being this month's host!
