Have these drinks... on me... I'll pay when I get there.

Elizabeth's Highball
On broken ice...
3-4 shakes Fee's rhubarb bitters
Fresh lemon juice
2 oz Square One Botanical
1/4 oz (a dash) of Luxardo Maraschino
Fill with seltzer
Stir well

Garnish with a lemon peel first heated w/a lighter to bring out the oils, and then wiped around the rim

Serve in a tall, slender glass.

Didn't try some fresh mint in there, but it would look nice... might taste good too.

The Asshole
On broken ice
3-4 oz Plymouth Gin (the smooth gin)
1/2 oz Chartreuse (green)
3 shakes Fee's rhubarb bitters
Splash of absinthe
bit of simple syrup
fill w/seltzer or just plain water
stir well

"Were you boooooooorn an asshole, or did you work at it yer whole life? Either way it worked out fine, 'cause yer an assssssshooooole tonight."

A few dashes of Regan's Orange Bitters do fine w/this mix. Looks like Mountain Dew.
