Rye.  Aquavit.  Mustard powder.  Schwartz's Montreal steak spice mix.  Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray.


Mix.   Drink.  Vomit.


I'm reminded of one of my favorites from Amor Y Amargo's heyday -- Scandi Gibson


2 oz Krogstad Aquavit

1 oz Cocchi Americano

15 drops Bitterman's Celery Shrub

10 drops Bitterman's Hellfire Shrub

cocktail onion


As advertised, tastes like rye bread in a glass. Many years later, still in regular rotation at home.

Until I saw Albert Brooks' tweet about his death, I had no idea they were brothers.

My wife and I took a leisurely ferry ride up the East River to the new Mekelburg's for a low-key decadent birthday lunch yesterday (with a low-key decadent whiskey tasting at Kings County Distillery).


The apple/butternut squash bisque with foie gras "Oreo" was orgasmic. The cracklin's "l'amuse" was pretty killer too, and the meatloaf -- how do you make a meatloaf sandwich that rich and decadent feel so light and airy?


And that babka beer....


Good stuff! GOOD STUFF!
