andrea & the governor

1 oz Bastille French Whisky
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
2 dash Mansinthe Absinthe

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

For a final cocktail at Local 149, bartender John Mayer suggested another drink with the Bastille French whisky he was calling Andrea & the Governor. Both Andrea and the Governor are characters in the zombie apocalypse televisionseries The Walking Dead, and in one of the episodes back in November, there was a product placement of this whiskey. Over all, the whiskey is on the lighter style and most comparable to an Irish whiskey.

The absinthe began the drink with an anise aroma. A citrus and floral sip led into a whiskey and citrus swallow with an absinthe finish.
