It's the End of the World as We Know It Cocktail

Unless you've been completely cut off from pop culture, you know that Friday marks the Mayan-predicted apocalypse. And several restaurants are cashing in on the (possibly) non-existent fire and brimstone event - including Logan Square's Longman & Eagle. The trendy establishment will "commemorate the destruction of all things human" with an exclusive cocktail that's sure to put hair on your chest: Out With a Bang, priced at $20.12.

Longman & Eagle were kind enough to share the recipe, a variation on the classic Blackthorn cocktail.

Out with a Bang!
2oz 2012 Thomas H. Handy Rye
3/4oz Carpano Antica
2 dashes Angostura
2 dashes Absinthe

We have another suggestion: a tumbler filled with fermented corn liquor. So, what are you drinking on Friday?

Glogg at Simons! What better way to end civilization as we know it than with fortified Swedish wine?

I'll have some nice scotch from Islay, which might as well be the end of the world.

For beer drinkers, perhaps La Fin du Monde?
