Let me introduce you to the Secreto “Fall”ernum: Blanton’s Bourbon, Falernum (and extract of nutmeg, allspice, almonds and I forget what else), orange bitters, lemon juice, pumpkin spice rim. Warm. Good.

Even better is the crazy fortuitous bartender, Chris. He grew up in GA and MARCHED in the Forsyth County protests of 1987, the subject of my next novel. Crazy, crazy world.


One thought on “Fallernum

  1. Have you read V. S. Naipaul’s account of that march? He met with, and was impressed by, Sheriff Walraven. It’s in his book _A Turn in the South_.
