for @nhallfreelance
1 12 oz Whiskey, McCarthy's
34 oz Bourbon, Old Grand Dad (Bonded)
34 oz Lemon juice
12 oz Suze
1 bsp Simple syrup
2 ds Bitters, Fish Sauce Bitters (see note)
1 rinse Pastis, Herbsaint
Instructions
Chill a coupe with ice. Pour in a little Herbsaint like you're making a Sazerac and discard the ice and Herbsaint (though leaving a little is nice). Shake and strain everything else into the chilled glass.
Notes
McCarthy's is Clear Creek's peated whiskey. The bitters were made by a friend and are (evidently) half and half Peychaud's and fish sauce.
