Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After dinner on Sunday night, it was time for another cocktail. Since the Sherry Cobbler was so old school, I decided to shift gears and make a newer drink which led me to the Rogue Cocktails book. The drink was created by Maksym Pazunia of the Cure in New Orleans and he named it in a hurry due to a deadline by googling for "voodoo gods". Clermeil is a Voodoo god who makes rivers overflow when angered, which is rather appropriate given New Orlean's history. A quick search found a Huffington Post article that agreed, "Noted religious entrepreneur Jerry Falwell blamed Katrina's destruction on HIS God's anger over rampant fun and too much sex with too many people in New Orleans. He should have blamed Clermeil, the Voodoo God who, when angered makes rivers overflow. Everybody knows it was Clermeil who did it."
