Today we did the Lucian Bacchanal. This is a drink I invented under a different name 10 years ago. The story of that first drink, where I was challenged by another bartender, is here.
Video of me making that drink can be seen below. Please forgive the sloppy jigger work and silly hair toss. I was but a baby bartender in a strange bar and had just gotten my hair did. Tell me...do you prefer my raven locks of hair, or my current curly strawberry blonde?
We discussed in class today how Chairman's worked great, but the Bounty Dark brings out a little more of that mezcal smoke.

.5 oz Vida Mezcal
.75 oz "Abby's Mix"*
.75 oz Lime Juice
Shake and strain into a cocktail coup/
