It’s raining cannons and Desert Eagle 50-calibers outside the Urbasm basecamp today, and we need a COTM (Cocktail of the Moment). Something with a little tang to go with the toothpaste that is still fresh on our tongue, yet enough kick to knock us on our ass by noon–we’re talking about a Man O’ War. Here’s what you do.
Mix 2 oz bourbon, 1 oz triple sec, .and 5 oz Sweet vermouth into a man-sized shaker filled with a little ice. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, shake, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with either an orange or lemon twist, and if a lady is present, don’t forget the brandies cherry on a cocktail pick.
