    I've been working on this recipe for a couple of months, after being introduced at San Jose's 55 South. The Velvet Falernum is indispensable. I've also enjoyed making it with Cognac in place of rye.
  • Blackbird Bar
    Falernum is so versatile
  • Danny Santiago
    To me the garnish on the one thing that ties it together, after drinking this one for a solid week straight, cause it's so DAMN delish duh!!! I felt there was something missing.... FIRE!!!! I found flamming the orange peel added another profile the RYE wasn't providing... smoke. This drink rocks, I cant wait to make the trip to the Blackird Bar soon.
