Coffee Contest Winner

Coffee Contest Winner
We have a winner in the Bull Run Roasting Coffee Contest. His name is Kevin Forza and he treated us to a bit of poetry:

THE BALLAD OF A LONELY TOOLBAG

She was drinking Magnificent Bastards.
I was getting amazingly plastered.
    Rocking Tommy Bahama,
    I'm like, "Yo, babymama!"
(There are rules I still haven't mastered.)

Congratulations to Kevin. For writing poetry that maybe took 10 minutes he's won a year's supply of Magnificent Bastard "Morning After" Roast, two cool coffee mugs, and a Hario grinder. Enjoy, Kevin. We like your sense of humor and we sure hope you're kidding about rocking Tommy Bahama.

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
