CHA CHA MUSTY

A Spicy Cool Sensation  

 

Cha Cha Musty is the nickname of our favorite 7-11 franchisee in Chicago. He lets us make these and hang out in front of his store. This was also the main character's final cocktail in Entry-Level.

  2. 6 oz Squirt

  3. 1 oz Ruby Red or grapefruit juice

Preparation

  • Fill your glass with ice

  • Top with a generous splash of grapefruit juice or Ruby Red 

  • Garnish with lime or grapefruit

SIMPLE SAZERAC

A New Orleans Tradition

This whiskey treat is thought to be America's first cocktail. The simplified version is the way I have seen them made at high-volume bars in the French Quarter. It is also the featured drink in the over-the-hill jazz funeral scene in Entry-Level.

 

Ingredients

  • Chilled highball glass

  • 1.5 - 3.0 ounces rye whiskey

  • Absinthe

  • Peychaud's bitters

  • 1/2 tsp simple syrup

​ 

Preparation

  • Place a highball glass in the icebox ahead of time for chilling

  • Stir the simple syrup, rye, and 3-5 dashes of bitters in a shaker with ice

  • Coat the chilled highball glass with a splash of absinthe by swirling

  • Strain the shaker in to the chilled highball glass and garnish with lemon peel
