The Saints came marching in to The Big Easy on Tuesday to celebrate their first Superbowl victory, so I invented a new mix to share the glitz (from the other side of the continent). Call it the Ne Plus Ultra (The Flawless).
The Ingredients (by proportion)
3 Parts Bourbon
2 Parts Mandarin Orange Liqueur
1 Part Herbsaint
2 Parts Fresh Lemon Juice
Shaken hard and served up (no garnish).
Just enough of the traditional flavor of the Deep South to evoke the smooth side of the alligator. Soothe that savage beast!
