Seems one would seal the deal on a horrible hangover with this drink!

Ha!  Fantastic!  I haven’t found this on any of the menus of the cocktail bars in Toronto.  Is this a regional speciality?

So what’s the deal with “Bainbridge Island”? Is that a local Seattle in-joke? Is Bainbridge not a nice area?

Hilariously deadpan.

Ginty, the name “Bainbridge Island” comes from the fact that Colin Kimball (SSN founder and producer) lives on Bainbridge Island which is in the Puget Sound just off of Seattle.

At this particular filming session Colin couldn’t make it, and so as a joke for/on him, I decided on the spur of the moment to have the crew quickly film this spoof video. I gathered all of the “leftovers” from the day’s shoot and combined them together into the drink you see here.

Robert, I see you say 1/2 oz of each ingredient but you’re shown overpouring/underpouring some.  Was this intentional to affect the flavor profile, or a mistake in the recipe?  Very interested in making this for special occasions. 

Thanks!

I hope this was a April fool’s

I’m encouraged to see so many left overs - presumably that means lots of videos.

As I understand it the technical term when you cannot fit any more bottles of Liquor in your bar is “Jacksoned”. I.e “There was a good special on Rye a the store, but I didn’t get any as my liquor cabinet is totally Jacksoned”.

Seems like this would be a good way of de-Jacksoning your bar.

Wonderful idea; I’ll have to try it.  I’d think the Grasshopper would throw off the delicate balance, though.
