The Wicked Stage

  • 2.0 oz. FEW Bourbon
  • 0.5 oz. allspice dram
  • 0.25 oz. huckleberry shrub
  • 0.25 oz. lemon juice
  • 1.0 oz. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel ale (to float)

Shake all ingredients but the ale with ice, then strain into coupe. Top with the ale.

I created this attempting to incorporate ingredients from Kentucky, Illinois and Mississippi into the recipe (for how the character of Kim was named in the show, though I prefer this name to simply calling this the “Kim cocktail”). FEW is made in Illinois, the beer comes from Kentucky. I couldn’t get a hold of a Mississippi ingredient that worked (I played with pecans and looked for sorghum), so opted for huckleberry shrub, as the plant is at least found in Mississippi.

In the end, I just wanted to make a tasty drink, though (don’t try to find meaning in the allspice dram), and I think this one succeeded. All aboard!
