When I think of my favorite ~drinkspirational~ movie characters, the list is pretty long. Marian, drinking that giant dude under the table in #IndianaJones. Rick drinking bourbon in his gin joint in #Casablanca. The Dude with his constant White Russians in #TheBigLebowski. Nick and Nora with martinis from Thin Man. But I think the COOLEST drunk in all film history is Doc Holliday from #Tombstone.
This cocktail was made in his honor for this month’s #homebarawards. It’s got Old Overholt (Doc’s fav whiskey IRL), mezcal to represent some gunsmoke, spicy bitters as an homage to Wild West heat, and huckleberry syrup as a nod to one of his most iconic lines (I also scattered some blood red daisies because.... well, if you know you know 😉).
I Have Not Yet Begun To Defile Myself:
