Sunset Cocktail: Baphomet on the Beach

1 1/2 oz Devil’s Share White Whiskey
1/2 oz. Mansinthe Absinthe
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
1 oz. Orange Juice (Blood Orange if you can)
1 oz. Maurin Quina

Shake first 4 ingredients with ice and strain into an ice filled Collins Glass. Top with Maurin Quina and garnish with a Blood Orange Wheel.

Based on a Sex on the Beach but made with the most Devilish ingredients I had and some bad intent, the flavor profile actually isn't so bad.

Conversation at lunch today of course came up on the incident in Nice where a woman in a "Burkini" was confronted and, by all counts, humiliated in public by the police. This lead to a conversation about a number of things, staying quite civil as we were friends with like minds and the internet wasn't involved.

My final conclusion was that no matter how much I hate oppressive religions where followers convince themselves that this oppression is God's will, I hate governments who enforce their own militant oppression of bullshit laws that really only make matters worse. You're now continuing to make more people push back.

So, with this in mind I mentioned that this just made me want to go to the beach in Nice wearing my full priest cassock with a Baphomet mask to see if I'd get arrested for not wearing “an outfit respecting good morals and secularism”... which I guess I wouldn't be. I'd be a Baphomet on the beach.

"That sounds like a drink".

"You should make a 'Baphomet on the Beach' cocktail".

So, I did.
