ForrestFrazier's Notes

In The Gun Club Drink Book, author Charles Browne claimed that this olde tyme libation served only to lubricate one's mustache. Don't believe the hype, there is something special about sipping your beverage though the melting butter that just warms you up on a frigid day.

Actually I had a cold and this cleared my head. You can still taste the booze but it's the aroma that makes this drink so amazing.
