Oaxaca Old-Fashioned

1 1/2 oz reposado tequila
1/2 oz mezcal
1 tsp agave nectar
2 dashes Angostura

The recipe calls for a flamed orange peel as garnish but I can't be bothered to find a match or squeeze an orange peel while holding a lit match. That type of coordination is asking for too much at this point in my trajectory!

Combine ingredients in a glass and stir, stir, and stir more. Despite your stirring, the agave nectar will remain on your spoon, so lick the spoon while contemplating how much better agave nectar tastes on warm, buttered English muffins than it does on your bar spoon.

^^^ the seasoned drinker always has an easy replacement in hand when it becomes too complicated. Esp when drunk already, everything fire related leads to unnecessary danger

Hahah! That is great! Every drink should be made with that much rhythm and soul.

Ezra Brooks Kentucky sour mash bourbon whiskey for me.
Cheers!

Trying some Ella Hoppy Lager from Otter Creek and I like it. Not too bitter. And Jameson's on the rocks just because.

My own interpretation of a sazerac.

This January, I was in NOLA and, at every bar we visited, I ordered a sazerac. The recipes/preparations were all over the place. Even the same bar could not make the same drink as the one I had the day before.

My sazerac for tonight:
3 ounces Old Overholt rye whiskey
½ ounce muscovado simple syrup (muscovado is a super rich sugar, with a strong taste of molasses)
7 dashes Peychauds bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
absinthe rinse
lemon peel for garnish

Drinking Admiral Nelson's spiced rum since the liquor store has been out of Kentucky Deluxe.

This stuff is super drinkable, but the low ABV is kind of a bummer. I like more of a kick.

That's funny. I was in NOLA in January too. We went to Tujague's, with the oldest stand-up bar, and supposedly the birthplace of the Sazerac, and ordered one. I thought it was a bit different from the previous trip there (15 months earlier). So I asked the bartender about it. He said "we changed the recipe."

What the fuck?

The fucking drink isn't some fucking jungle juice. It's a specific drink. With specific ingredients. And specific measurements. And a specific method of preparation. And this fucking place invented it? And 150 years later, they "changed the recipe"?

What's up with the Sazerac?

What's up with Tujague's?
