I like that this drink doesn't hold back, even in the name. It's bitter and herbaceous and so ridiculously strong that Earthquake is a fitting name. Someone a long time ago probably wondered what would happen to you when you mixed nearly equal parts bourbon, gin and Pernod. The results are in. If you finish this drink, the ground seems to move.

I made an interesting choice with my gin for this drink. Bluecoat Barrel Aged Gin had all the right qualities for blending with a spicy bourbon like Jim Beam. Pernod, of course overwhelms, but throughout drinking, there is this delicious impression of aged spirits. Oak and barrels and yumminess under a heavy curtain of French absinthe liqueur.
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. gin (Bluecoat Barrel Reserve gin used)
  • 1 oz. Pernod
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
