Pecan Browned Butter Rum
Nate Wales, La Condesa
Designed for the recent Tipsy Texan cocktail contest, this knock-out rum number packs a brown sugar/ cinnamon/ pecan butter reduction alongside nutty Amontillado sherry and pecan house bitters, garnished with dehydrated poblano peppers, also Julius' spicy cousin when he forgets to drink water before frenzied dance sessions at Bears bars.
Tiki Tiki Toddy
Bill Norris, Haddingtons
Even though they're not yet open, the forthcoming British pub couldn't stand the idea of your intemperate sobriety, so they've suggested another rum-bler with both light and anejo (Don Q and Brugal suggested), Domaine de Canton, boiling water, the peel of lemon, fresh nutmeg, and mole bitters, as you'd be if the only action you got was getting whacked.
Cóctel de Café Chileno
Raul Escober, La Sombra
La Sombra's egg-white-assisted hot fizz shakes together Pisco Capel with coffee, dulce de leche, and a muddled strawberry, hull removed -- though if you're talking about the crease, Brett was never removed. Or was he?
Ben Craven, Perla's
This orange-pekoe-tea & honey belly warmer brings the booze with more Canton and Amaro Averna, but not Amar'e Averna, because unlike Stoudemire, mixing French and Italian isn't kosher.
Hot & Bothered
Jose Sapien, Paggi House
Seasonally bolstered with warm heavy cream & frothed milk, this highly aroused 'tail swims with gin, Navan vanilla liqueur, fresh squeezed OJ, and Maurin Quina le Puy, an almond-'n-macerated-cherry-abetted fortified wine with a green devil on the label, clearly Mason Plumlee envious of all that sex the lacrosse team is having. George Brett!
