Ask the MB: Desert Boots

Ask the MB: Desert Boots
Q: What's a better choice for desert boots: leather or suede? Also, should I stick with Clarks or go for another brand?
--Sam


A:

1. Desert boots are suede.

2. Clarks invented desert boots. They were first worn by British officers doing battle with Rommel in the deserts of North Africa. In other words, stick with Clarks.

  • 1 raw sugar cube
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
