Introducing — Stock The Bar

Last week, David Griner challenged me to pick the drinks I’d mix for stock photo characters. After a few trial names were thrown about, Stock The Bar was born. Without further ado, here’s round one!

1. Brickman obviously needs a Blood & Sand. It’s sweet without being cloying and contains Scotch — the perfect combination to loosen him up. But watch out for sales pitches. The drink’s color may trigger residual brick salesmanship.

2. Silence in the library! This perturbed teacher probably loves quiet, Doctor Who and suspenders, so a Sidecar would be suitably geeky. It might be a little sweet for her taste, so I’d add a dash or two of bitters to dry it out.
3. Following the Golden Rule is paramount in life, so this yogi will drink as I drink. Does rye whiskey, lemon juice, Luxardo and green Chartreuse sound appealing? Maybe not on paper, but he’ll have the Final Word.
4. If Fae Barbie wants a double vodka soda with lime, that’s what she’ll get. Unless she’s an avowed whiskey drinker as well, there’s not much I can do to change her preference.
5. This child of the corn will take a Dirt ‘n’ Diesel. With blackstrap rum, Fernet, demerara, Cynar and lime juice, this earthy recipe needs rebalancing but should be dark, rich and challenging.
