What to Drink This Weekend: Walnut Sazerac

It’s bold to try to update a classic cocktail like the sazerac, but mixologist Johnny Swet from The Rickey at Dream Downtown in New York City did just that. The base, like any good sazerac, is rye whiskey. It also contains Nocello Walnut Liquor, absinthe, Peychud’s Bitters,  and a lemon twist. “While its undertones are rich with spices and its texture somewhat creamy, this drink is surprisingly light,” says Swet. The unusual blend of walnut liquor, absinthe and lemon will give your taste buds the holiday flavor you’ve been missing.

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
