Wrong Week

Inspired by the movie "Airplane!"
23 oz Gin, Barr Hill Tom Cat
23 oz Blended Scotch, Johnnie Walker Red Label
23 oz Cognac, Hennessy
1 oz Sweet vermouth
1 t Grand Marnier
1 ds Orange bitters
Stir; strain; up. Form cream of coconut into thin string of putty around half the glass rim. Attach "glass shard sugar". Sugar recipe can be found here: https://nerdymamma.com/sugar-glass-recipe-or-candy-glass/
When I have made it thereafter, I add a dash of Crude Bitters "Pooter" smoke & salt bitters to accentuate the smoke (to good effect)
My girlfriend and I started doing a weekly movie date night where we take turns creating cocktails inspired by classic movies. This was the inaugural recipe. Smoke + cedar from the scotch & Tom Cat ("I picked the wrong week to quit smoking"; sweet vermouth ("I picked the wrong week to quit drinking"); cream of coconut ("I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue") holds on edible glass shard sugar garnish ("I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines"); and finally, Hennessy for those who "speak jive"!
