A Sazerac the way Bigfoot prefers it

The legend of Bigfoot began in the Redwood Forests of Northern California... Back in 1958, local loggers discovered “mysteriously large” footprints and penciled a letter to the editor of the Humboldt times suggesting that they might belong to a giant humanoid creature, “Maybe we have a relative of the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas?”

The story was printed, the legend continues, and reportedly, Sasquatch appreciates his Sazerac with a splash of Grand Marnier.

  • 2oz/16oz Redwood Empire Emerald Giant Rye Whiskey
  • 1oz/8oz Grand Marnier
  • Rinse the tumbler with Absinthe

Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
