Cocktails are nice. So nice. David Farley’s marathon drinking session in India got me thinking: what U.S. cocktail-drinking experience would I like to relive? Some may laugh but, after a crapola week, I’m craving the simplicity and sweet ease of drinking a Presbyterian while watching the Peabody Hotel ducks march their way into the lobby fountain. Sounds pleasant right about now, eh?

Three OUNCES of bourbon? That does indeed sound pleasant. It also sounds like you’d walk like the ducks by the time you finished your cocktail.

Sipping a glass of the 30 year old Gonzalez Byass ‘Matusalem’ Oloroso Dulce in the DesBarres Manor Inn Parlour Room cocktail bar after a fabulous dinner is always a special event.
