MxMo XLIX: Tom Waits

My urge to create something is often inspired by music, and Tom Waits is among my favorite artists. Special thanks to Andrew Bohrer at Caskstrength for the theme for this Mixology Monday.

could a been on easy street
could a been a wheel

with irons in the fire
and all them business deals

but the last of the big time losers
shouted before he drove away
I'll be right back as soon as I crack

the one that got away
—Tom Waits, The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz espresso
  • 1/4 oz Galliano
  • 1/4 oz absinthe
Stir with ice and strain into an old fashioned. Add ice and garnish with a lemon twist.
