November 10, 2016 – The Republic Steakhouse
Being that this previous Tuesday was Election Day, we were all feeling a bit emotionally raw. I thought it would be fun to follow the lead of many bars across the country and concoct drinks inspired by the candidates. I’m not going to name names, but it’s pretty obvious which is which. See The Bad Hombre for the other side of the aisle.
The Nasty Woman
1 oz. absinthe
1 oz. Plymouth Navy Strength gin
5 drops lavender bitters
Splash of mezcal
Whooo! This packs a huge punch. Ben is responsible for this one, and commented that a couple of these would turn even me into a nasty woman. The drink is super floral with the lavender bitters and the absinthe and the cucumber adding a little green flavor. After this, the nasty kicks in with the gin and mezcal.
