|1 1⁄2||oz||Whiskey, McCarthy's|
|3⁄4||oz||Bourbon, Old Grand Dad (Bonded)|
|2||ds||Bitters, Fish Sauce Bitters (see note)|
Chill a coupe with ice. Pour in a little Herbsaint like you're making a Sazerac and discard the ice and Herbsaint (though leaving a little is nice). Shake and strain everything else into the chilled glass.
McCarthy's is Clear Creek's peated whiskey. The bitters were made by a friend and are (evidently) half and half Peychaud's and fish sauce.
