Everyone hates attorneys, unless they are one (like me) or need one (unlike me, but maybe you?). The attorney client privilege with its confidentiality is a key part of the legal system. Thanks to Imbibe magazine for introducing me to what it labels the Attorney Privilege. The person who named this cocktail is not in the legal profession, as it is the attorney client privilege, not the attorney privilege.
2 ounces bourbon
.5 ounces orgeat syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine in a shaker with ice, stir with the measured rhythm of an attorney explaining just how screwed you might be, and strain into a chilled glass.
Pairing bourbon with orgeat syrup, which you're more likely to find in tiki drinks such as the Mai Tai, seems unusual. Nonetheless, the two complement each other quite well.
Here's some free legal advice: remember the numbers five and 11. Five as in the Fifth Amendment -- the right against self-incrimination. 11 as in the 11th Commandment -- thou shalt not get caught (just kidding, that one is not in the Old Testament). Of course, this is NOT real legal advice.
Now here's some free drinking advice: have an Attorney Client Privilege. Consider it our not so confidential communication.
