Two Thursdays ago, we began the cocktail hour with a drink I spotted on Maksym Pazuniak's twitter feed for his weekly Something Like This event. The Barefoot in the Dark description reminded me a lot of his Last Mechanical Art from Beta Cocktails with a change of smokey spirits. What really drew me in was his use of Swedish Punsch which I thought would help smooth over the concept more than the original's Punt e Mes. Therefore, I wrote Maks and requested the recipe. Maks explained that it was indeed a riff on the Last Mechanical Art as well as on the Boulevardier.
