I Can't Take You Anywhere - A Cocktail

Gastronomista - I Can't Take You Anywhere, A Cocktail

I have to be honest, I cannot for the life of me recall how this cocktail received its name.  Likely a joke about how I tend to spill whatever I'm eating or drinking all over myself, despite being the lady that I am.  Either way, one night, here at Gastro HQ, the recipe was created, the name was given, and well, here we are.


Wherewith, I Can't Take You Anywhere, a cocktail for those who love cocktails, but tend to wear most of their cocktail rather than drink it.  Low-ball glasses recommended.

This cocktail has a wonderful balance of spicy heat from the Canadian rye whisky, an herbal sweetness from the Benedictine, and a fire-y kick from the Tabasco.  I recommend using the Chipotle Tabasco Sauce to give it a more robust smoky flavor.

  1. And here I thought the title had to do with the fact that walking down main street with a cocktail is frowned upon in most cities... Love anything with Tabasco so I look forward to trying this.
