We were getting ready to record next week’s podcast and – per tradition – needed something to drink.  So naturally, I asked Chris to throw something together.  With all of the Thanksgiving madness, it’s been a while since we’ve been shopping so we didn’t have much to play with – no citrus at all!

This cocktail came out fantastic, especially considering Chris had to resort to (gasp) lime juice concentrate and the mint that’s miraculously still alive in our yard.

I love how Chris got creative on the garnish – this cocktail really could have gone an entirely different direction, in a coupe glass without ice and garnished with the zest of lime.  But since we were lime-less, he took his inspiration from a Swizzle, threw it in a Highball with some crushed ice and topped with Peychaud’s Bitters and Mint.  Beautiful, and delicious!
