Thanksgiving for Jack

A marriage of the floral, woody and sweet.
2 oz Mezcal
1 oz Lillet Blanc
12 oz White Crème de Cacao
1 rinse Absinthe
Stir with ice and pour into a chilled coupe.
Anise and licorice on the nose, smoke on the tongue and then a touch of chocolate on the finish. If you want a hint of fruit, consider adding an orange twist.
I came up with this while rewatching 24 and thinking that Thanksgiving should be dedicated to Jack Bauer and the many, many times he's stopped widespread disaster. Hence the smoky destruction of Mezcal, with a hint of holiday sweetness in the absinthe and creme de cacao.

  • Pretty good. I figured what the heck and gave it a couple drops of Aztec chocolate bitters too. Thumbs up. — ☆☆☆☆
