128. Mac DeMarco - ‘2’ + Shoo-Fly Punch

Mac DeMarco - ‘2’ + Shoo-Fly Punch

Ingredients:  2 1/2 ounces bourbon, 1 ounce ginger liqueur, 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice, 1/2 ounce simple syrup, 3 dashes angostura bitters, ice, non-alcoholic ginger beer, orange slices and fresh mint sprigs for garnish.

Mixing Instructions:  Stir together first 5 ingredients with ice in highball glass.  Top with ginger beer, garnish with orange and mint and serve immediately.

Notes:  “Yacht Club Jangle that’s surprisingly good…and borderline addictive.”  That’s how I recently described the sound of Mac DeMarco’s second album to a friend.  Featuring a slinky guitar that accompanies DeMarco throughout the album like a well-oiled six shooter, the Montreal-based musician doles out honest and introspective lyrics in a way that have a way of going easily unnoticed, lost in the syrup of his sound.  This is an album best listened to on the patio with a smoke in one hand and a smooth, but potent cocktail in the other.
