Drink of the Day: Satan’s Whiskers

September 7, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Here’s an interesting one for you for your Sunday quaff.  An old pre-Prohibition cocktail that is very potent and a true sipper in every sense of the word.  Figured I would throw out an oldie, but goodie, to start the week off right.

For all you football fans out there, this may be one you will be imbibing on during the whole first half of the game.  You will surely want to take your time enjoying the many flavors it throws at you.  Who says you have to stick with beer while watching your favorite team?  No matter what you are doing today, kick back and relax.  You know you deserve it!

Have a great Sunday, everyone!  Cheers!
