Bring Back the Creole-Rum Sazerac

When it comes to rejiggering classic cocktails, it’s possible to deviate so severely from the original that the “riff” ends up bearing little resemblance to the recipe that inspired it. That’s the dynamic at play in the curious case of the Creole-Rum Sazerac, a Disco-era concoction with dubious connections to New Orleans’ most famous drink.

Rye (or Cognac), Peychaud’s bitters and sugar in an Herbsaint-rinsed glass, the Sazerac is an expression of cocktail culture at its most unvarnished and elemental. So it’s altogether uncouth to invoke its name in describing a drink featuring Pernod, two types of rum, Angostura bitters, lemon juice and a hit of bottled hot sauce.

Drew Pompa, of Takoi in Detroit, first discovered the cursed concoction in an appropriately unconventional place: the Two-in-One International Recipe Card Collection for Mixed Drinks and Hors D’Oeuvre, a compact folio of flashcards instructing users on the finer points of more than 500 cocktails, paired with recipes for thematic snacks.

Pompa received the thrift store relic, released by Random House in 1977, from a friend who thought he might get a kick out of it. An avid vinyl head, the beverage director immediately identified some parallels between his musical passions and this alternative brand of crate-digging. “Part of the thrill of record collecting is searching for B-sides and rarities,” he says. While well-known drinking texts, like Mr. Boston or The Savoy Cocktail Book, are mainstream albums, a rare bird like Two-in-One stands in for those finds “no one knows about or talks about, but imbue a certain level of intrigue in the listener.”

Organizing the cards into sections by base spirit, author Michael Dorn—not to be confused with the actor of the same name—covers a tremendous amount of ground. Two-in-One chronicles canon entries, like the Clover Club, Daiquiri and Singapore Sling, as well as deeper cuts like the Champs-Élysées or Alaska. But Dorn, a prolific food editor from Minnesota who developed similar recipe-card sets for brands like Betty Crocker, McCall’s and Weight Watchers, also ropes in ingredients reflecting the consumptive trends of the late ’70s, like blue Curaçao, green crème de menthe and Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial. Then there are some altogether bizarre offerings, like the Hot Schotsie—vodka, kirsch, hot beef broth and hot sauerkraut juice.

How the West will be won: Golden Knights' Stanley Cup hopes go through Colorado, and vice versa

Joe Mahoney/AP

Vegas Golden Knights right wing Keegan Kolesar (55) fights Colorado Avalanche defenseman Dan Renouf (2) during the first period of an NHL hockey game in Denver, Saturday, March 27, 2021.

Game 7 playoff stunners have prevented the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche from meeting in a postseason series each of the past two years.

In 2019, the infamous Cody Eakin major penalty call helped San Jose defeat Vegas and advance to the second round, where Colorado stood waiting. Then last year, a hat trick secured by relatively unknown Dallas rookie Joel Kirivanta in overtime of a second-round series killed the Avalanche’s chances of facing the Golden Knights in the Western Conference Finals.

Absinthe celebrates 10 years as a Las Vegas rite of passage

<em>Absinthe’s Wande Widdles</em>

It began as a curiosity before blossoming into an unlikely hit on the Las Vegas Strip, something that simultaneously mocked and celebrated its own influences and inspirations. Then at some point, Absinthe became that one thing that everyone needed to check out when in Vegas, even for those of us who are always in Vegas.

Now at 10 years old, it’s a full-fledged institution, still one of the most buzzed-about shows on the Strip (even through the pandemic year) and a landmark innovation that has impacted the direction of live entertainment in Las Vegas.

Absinthe

Edgy, alluring, outrageous, jubilant—you know what Absinthe is. But it was supposed to be something different upon landing on the Strip. Although the earliest shows and foundations of its creative company, Spiegelworld, were built in New York City in 2006, the original plan for a Vegas invasion was hatched a few years later in Miami.

Founder Ross Mollison says the company was built around the notion of multiple experiences occurring in or around a spiegeltent, a large structure typically made of canvas and wood and decorated with mirrors and stained glass—a makeshift entertainment venue that can be set up and broken down in order to travel from city to city.

All is Not Lost:  Bidding Begins on Unprecedented Brora Auction – Scotch Whisky News



All is Not Lost:  Bidding Begins on Unprecedented Brora Auction

Dormant for decades and sometimes a generation, whisky from ‘lost distilleries’ often has mythical status. This is undoubtedly true for legendary Sutherland distillery Brora (closed in 1983), whose whisky has become increasingly sought-after in recent years. There may be more ubiquitous names in the world of whisky, but to whisky connoisseurs, collectors and investors there is none more revered for its quality of liquid, extreme rarity and unique history than Brora.

The world’s leading whisky auction house, Whisky Auctioneer, is to host the first ever dedicated Brora whisky auction taking place from the 15th – 19th of April on www.whiskyauctioneer.com, showcasing over 50 Brora bottles, as part of the largest collection of Brora ever to be held in one auction.

The auction will include extremely scarce expressions from the Old Clynelish distillery (now known as Brora) distilled prior to its brief closure in the late sixties. Today, these rarities are celebrated for their highly idiosyncratic style and elusive waxy character that cannot be replicated in modern whiskies.

The sale will also feature various expressions from the historic 1972 Brora vintage, a chapter of whisky history all on its own. These include the 1972 Cask Strength 40 Year Old decanter, the oldest Brora ever released at the time and a sibling to some of the most legendary expressions ever produced at the distillery.

Texas investigating abuse allegations at migrant facility

LM Otero / AP

In this Wednesday, March 17, 2021, file photo, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott speaks during a news conference about migrant children detentions, in Dallas. Texas child welfare officials say they’ve received three reports of abuse and neglect at a San Antonio coliseum that is holding more than 1,600 immigrant teenagers who crossed the southern border.

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas child welfare officials said Wednesday they received three reports alleging abuse and neglect at a San Antonio coliseum that is holding more than 1,600 immigrant teenagers who crossed the southern border.

It is the first time state officials announced they are investigating such allegations at one of the emergency facilities the U.S. government has quickly set up in Texas amid a sharp increase in crossings of unaccompanied youths. A county official who also volunteers at the San Antonio site, the Freeman Coliseum, said the nature of the allegations do not align with what she has seen in multiple visits to the facility.

Virginia becomes first Southern state to legalize marijuana

Steve Helber / AP

A vote tally board displays the vote on a bill legalizing marijuana during the Senate reconvene session at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond, Va., Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia became the first Southern state to legalize marijuana Wednesday, as lawmakers voted to approve Gov. Ralph Northam’s proposed changes to a bill that will allow adults to possess and cultivate small amounts of the drug starting in July.

Northam sent the bill back to lawmakers substantially changed from the version that squeaked out of the General Assembly in February. The amendments lawmakers agreed to Wednesday would accelerate the timeline of legalization by about three years, well before retail sales would begin, a move that's been cheered by racial justice advocates.

WASHINGTON — Jill Biden on Wednesday delivered on her promise to prioritize the struggles of military families by reviving a decade-old initiative that challenged Americans to do something as simple as mow the lawn or drop off a meal for a family with a loved one in the armed forces.

Biden said military families are as important to the United States as a rudder is to a ship and that national security will be served by attending to their physical, social and emotional health.
