Happy Hour: Bourbon and Lim

Apr 29, 2011

 

3.1 Phillip Lim Embellished Silk Dress (Net-a-Porter, $1500)

There is a lot going on with this dress.  Multiple colors.  Multiple fabric textures.  Multiple types of sequins.  It’s complex in a good way.  And so is the cocktail below, which is from Acadiana in D.C..

Sometimes, being complicated is a good thing.

Ingredients

1/2 ounce pastis
1 lemon wedge and granulated sugar
Ice
11/2 ounces bourbon
1/4 ounce amaretto
1/4 ounce Frangelico
1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
1 ounce chilled club soda

Recipe

Rinse a martini glass with the pastis. Moisten the outer rim of the glass with the lemon wedge and coat lightly with sugar. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the bourbon, amaretto, Frangelico and Simple Syrup. Shake and strain into the martini glass. Top with the club soda.

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
