Ask the MB -- Livin' on a Prayer

Ask the MB -- Livin' on a Prayer
Q: Ok, so I finally ditched the black metal-band t-shirts. Now what? I want to keep that "rock" look, without looking like a 15 year-old mosh-pitter.
--Wrathbone


A: Wrathbone, you live for the fight when it's all that you've got.

John Bon Jovi was on 60 Minutes last week and provided aging rockers with a roadmap for sartorial success:

Top: Young Bon Jovi with grotesque, highlighted big hair and even more grotesque turquoise shirt (or, in your case, the equivalent of black metal-band t-shirt).

Bottom: Older, wiser Bon Jovi, with black leather boots, denim, fitted white t-shirt with very short sleeves, accessorization with rock 'n' roller sunglasses, necklace.

Give it a shot.

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.
