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 Myer'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!
