Ask the MB

Ask the MB
Q: While surfing the web, I came across this web site: jpeterman.com Some of the clothes were quite interesting. But then I thought, would the MB approve? Or is the site too 1990s?

On another topic: My wife says you're gay (NTTAWWT) because you watch Project Runway. I say you're not (NTTAWWT) since you obviously watch sports and you have a feature titled, "How to Determine if your chick is dirty girl." NTTAWWT, if so, but we have a bet riding on it.

Part I: We deeply admired J. Peterman back in the day, especially the brilliantly written catalog copy, which was taught in some colleges' English classes. However, it's geared mainly to the Boomer set, so we try to avoid.

Part II: The question is about as fresh and modern as the Seinfeld reference. Does that settle your bet?

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.
