Best Cocktail Ever!

There was a bar in San Jose I went to that operated as a speakeasy. When you were permitted to descend the steps into the basement, there was a rollicking bar with bartenders in vintage garb who would interview you about your tastes. This one was recommended as matching what I like, and to this day is my very favorite cocktail. I ask for it anywhere I go.

The richness of bourbon, spiciness of clove, and a zing of citrus make this a complex but refreshing cocktail for any mood.


  • 1-1/2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz Fee Brother’s Falernum syrup
  • 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 dashes of Peychaud’s bitters



Shake on ice and strain into a cocktail glass.


Save one for me.
