So my latest venture of booze shopping coupled with emails from booze companies has spawned my latest late night / early morning creation / horrible idea gone right.

Definition from dictionary.com.

rig·a·ma·role (rĭg'ə-mə-rōl') Pronunciation Key
n. Variant of rigmarole.
rig·ma·role (rĭg'mə-rōl') Pronunciation Key
Confused, rambling, or incoherent discourse; nonsense.
A complicated, petty set of procedures.

[Alteration of obsolete ragman roll, catalog, from Middle English ragmane rolle, scroll used in Ragman, a game of chance : perhaps from Anglo-Norman Ragemon le bon, Ragemon the Good, title of a set of verses about a character of this name + Middle English rolle, list (from Old French, from Latin rotula, wheel; see roll).]

The Rigamarole.
1 oz. Mitchter's Rye ( Im sure other rye's will work, but I finally got a bottle today. )
1 oz. Catdaddy
1/2 oz. Lime
1/2 oz. SImple
2-4 dashes Bitter Truth Celery Bitters
Rinse glass with Macallan Cask Strength
Lemon twist

Aside: I'd done a bit of reading online lately and tried out the Cameron's Kick from the Cocktail Chronicles (thank you again Paul for being a part of the absinthe event.) I made a point to leave all the bottles in front of the customers and none of the four could believe those ingredients made that drink. I particularly liked the matching of the orange twist with the lemon juice and applied that here by doing a lemon twist alongside lime juice.
