Next in our wicked series is Superbia, aka Pride, the sin of being too self absorbed. It is the sin from which all other sins arise. A little bit of self admiration is a good thing, but a little goes a long way. Too much, and as they say, “Pride goeth before a fall”. Check your ego while sipping this smokin’ libation created by Premier Beverage’s master Mixologist Nick Nistico. He’s very proud of it!
Before The Fall
2 oz dried apple infused Clyde May’s Whiskey
.5 oz Bitter Truth All Spice Dram
Stir gently then strain over rock ice
Garnish with “smoking” cinnamon
Tonight’s tune is Carly Simon’s infamous You’re So Vain: “You had one eye on the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte” (a French dance where the dancer prances around). “And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner! They’d be your partner, and… You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you. You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you Don’t you? Don’t You?”
Remember to check back nightly after dark for each spellbinding recipe in this series.
