The Kilted Pistolero
Shake in ice-filled shaker and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
- 1.5oz blanco tequila (I actually used my favorite reposado, Cazadores
- 3/4oz fresh lemon juice
- 3/4oz Drambuie
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters (I used the Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters)
- 1.5 oz Scotch (I'm a Dewar's White Label fan)
- .5oz Drambuie
Pour Scotch and Drambuie over plenty of ice in an Old Fashioned glass. Stir well, and serve with stirrer.
- 1.5oz Drambuie
- .5oz white Creme de Menthe
Same as above - pour liquors into Old Fashioned glass with plenty of ice. Stir and server with stirrer.
We followed that with a full icey mug of Sierra Nevada North Hemisphere Harvest beer, one of imbibe's 50 Best Brews for Every Season, in this case, the Fall beers. I went on a quest for the fall beers last month and found a couple. The Brooklyn Brewery Oktoberfest beer was only okay - nothing too memorable. The Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen was realy good while the Aecht Ochlenferla Rauchbeir was a truly strange tasting "smoked" beer.
I was also able to find the Southern Hemisphere Harvest beer (which was pretty good) but it wasn't until Michael found it that we got to try the Northern Hemisphere. A very hoppy beer. I liked the Southern Hemisphre better, as it was smoother but with as much character as the Northern.
