Ask the MB: Where Are You Located?

Q: Darling MB: Where are you located? I have trouble imagining you in NYC or SF, but I'd be delighted were you in either fine city. Also, the word "chick"? Utterly pedestrian. I'm not asking for you to go all-out hipster and say something ridiculous like "birdie" or "doll", but really. xx.

A: What, no kisses? Hon, your instincts are strong. We're based out of Pulaski, WI.




  • 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.
