Some of Bobby’s favorite libations from Entry-Level

Cha Cha Musty

A spicy cool sensation.  This drink was created by mixologist Alexander Barnett at Big Al’s The Boom Boom Room in Chicago.  Cha Cha Musty means “Uncle Pimp” in a certain dialect of Pakistani and is named after our favorite 7-11 franchisee in the Windy City, Cha Cha Musty.

 

Mix 3 oz. Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Navy Rum with Squirt lemon lime soda in a shaker with ice. Pour into a tall glass and add a generous grapefruit juice floater. Garnish with slice of lime.

Sazerac

This tastey whiskey treat is thought to be the first mixed drink ever concocted in the United States.  It’s also the drink served at the now infamous Over-the-Hill Jazz Funeral in Entry-Level.

Sazerac - America's 1st Cocktail

Pack an Old-Fashioned glass with ice. In a second Old-Fashioned glass add a dash of Peychaud’s bitters and a sugar cube. Crush the sugar cube. Add a generous shot of Sazerac Rye Whiskey to the second glass containing the Peychaud’s Bitters and sugar. Empty the ice from the first glass and coat the glass with the Herbsaint, then discard the remaining Herbsaint (or drip it into your mouth!). Empty the whiskey/bitters/sugar mixture from the second glass into the first glass and garnish with lemon peel.

Side Car  

This is a fun way for the ladies to drink their whiskies compliments of the Parisian Jazz-age.  Anne-Laure had the first drink of her life, the Side Car, at our favorite bar in Paris, Harry’s Bar.

Sidecar - Circa Jazz Age Paris

In shaker filled with ice, combine equal parts Cointreau, brandy, and lemon juice, and shake vigorously. Wet rim of a 3- to 4-ounce cocktail glass and place on a lightly sugared plate. Strain liquor into the glass and serve

 The Grinch

A Holiday cocktail contributed by Sion – my roommate in San Diego.  One shot each of premium vodka, Vanille Royale (vanilla liqueur), and Creme de Menthe, poured over ice in an old-fashioned glass, and topped up with milk. It is named “The Grinch” because it’s green, because it’ll surely steal your heart, but also because it can ruin your entire Christmas if you have too many.  Try it sans Creme de Menthe for the “Snowman”.

The Sazerac and Sidecar are my two favourite libations beginning with the letter ‘S’. Why didn’t they include them on Sesame Streeet?
