Happy Hour: Bourbon and Lim


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.


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


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.

    Perhaps 1/2 ounce bourbon instead of 11/2? Though I'd certainly say the recipe currently posted would be a lovely spendthenightonthefloor cocktail.

    I should have written it as 1.5.
