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.

Single/Firelight 750

  • 2oz/16oz Redwood Empire Emerald Giant Rye Whiskey
  • 1oz/8oz Grand Marnier
  • Rinse the tumbler with Absinthe
  • 3 Dashes/ 24 Dashes Peychaud's Bitters
Rinse your tumbler with absinthe, discarding any excess. In a mixing glass, combine rye, Grand Marnier, bitters and top with ice. Stir and strain into your tumbler. Serve up with a lemon peel.

Toast To 2020
Toast To 2020

Wow, what a year it's been! 2020 will certainly go down in the books as a monumental one for all of us. We're sending it off with a classy cocktail and toasting to a New Year with only hope and happy thoughts ahead of us. 

This drink is also known as the Twentieth Century Cocktail and it's a somewhat forgotten little gem. It's a brilliant cocktail that brings together a few unlikely companions: While you may not think that gin, chocolate, and lemon work well together, this recipe offers a pleasant surprise. The mix of gin and crème de cacao is amazing and the lemon acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur. Adding the elegance of Lillet Blanc brings it all together to create a timeless sour drink.
