If you're feeling the New Orleans spirit, there are other drinks to try besides a Hurricane. The Bois Beckett, for example, which Houston bartender Weston Ball mixes up in the fourth episode of the Old Forester Cocktail Chronicles.
The combination of lime, maple, and licorice flavors evokes a sultry night in the Big Easy — as does the double dose of booze. Watch the video and follow the recipe below to make a Bois Beckett of your own.
Yields 1 drink
1 ounce Old Forester 1870 Bourbon Whisky
1 ounce maple and licorice syrup
1 ounce Canadian whisky
3 dashes angostura bitters
1.5 ounces green chartreuse
Combine bourbon, syrup, whisky, and bitters in a mixing glass, pour over ice, and stir.
In a separate glass, add green chartreuse over ice.
Strain bourbon and whiskey mixture over the chartreuse.
Express lime oil into glass and add the lime garnish.
