Lula Mae Barnes
Kent Westmoreland of the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans shares this recipe with us, another in his series of cocktails inspired by "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
"Before moving to New York, Holly Golightly was a rural girl named Lula Mae Barnes," says Westmoreland. "This drastic name change made me envision a simple existence with yearnings of sophistication. So I went with a dusty road feeling — the basic ingredients — and added a touch of sophistication with the Palermo bitters, with cacao beans, yerba mate, black pepper and rich red and black fruit."
- 1 ounce mezcal
- 1 ounce bourbon
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1⁄2 ounce agave nectar
- 2 dashes Bittered Sling Palermo Bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice. Pour into ice-filled rocks glass.
