The Bad Hombre

November 10, 2016 – The Republic Steakhouse

As explained in the previous post, this Tuesday was Election Day. To salve our bruised emotions, Ben and Ryan created drinks inspired by the candidates. See The Nasty Woman for the other side of the aisle.

The Bad Hombre

1 1/2 oz. Casa Noble Reposado tequila
3/4 oz. Punt e Mes
3/4 oz. Licor 43 Cuarenta Y Tres liqueur
3/4 oz. mezcal

 

Another stunner. Smoky, sweet, a little chocolaty (although there’s nothing specifically chocolate here), and lots of tequila funk. This would make an excellent after-dinner drink.

The Nasty Woman

The Nasty Woman

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
Cucumber

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.
