Last Tuesday, the Hawthorne hosted a Cooper & King's event entitled "Mixtape" that featured "cocktails interpreting the music of Weezer & Sonic Youth" using the brand's spirits. Being a Sonic Youth fan since the late 80's, I honed in on the pair created by Josh Durr named after songs from the band's Experimental Jet Set, Trash, & No Star album, and I began with the Androgynous Cadillac Margarita. Josh described the unaged brandy in the drink as a very phenolic eau de vie of muscat grapes with pear and malic notes; the closest thing that I could compare it to was a grappa crossed with a pisco.
