A Hacker's Cocktail? -- The Black Hat
Hackers generally divide themselves into two camps -- white hats (those who use their skills for good) and black hats (those who do not). Consider this dichotomy as a high tech version of the Taoist concept of yin and yang.
This cocktail is adapted from Sable Bar in Chicago:
2.25 ounces bourbon (Willett Pot Still always works)
.75 ounces super simple syrup
Juice from 1/4 a lemon
Dash of cinnamon
1 egg white
1-2 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine in shaker without ice (this is dry shaking), shake like you're penetrating your enemy's network, add ice (this is wet shaking), shake again like you're a particularly nasty piece of malware, then strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a dash or two of cinnamon.
Just so we're clear, I'm not a hacker. My technological skills are hilariously limited. If it wasn't for my lovely and very technologically capable wife, I probably still would be using a flip phone.
