Yo, every time Drink Inc comes up with something, I absolutely love it! They have some of the best concepts for cocktails and the best inspiration. These Cop based cocktails are really dope! Check it out:

Recipes taken from Drink Inc.

A twist on a Sazerac -- the oldest cocktail

2 dashes of Peychaud's bitters (traditional New Orleans bitters)
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
2 ounces American rye whisky
Smoking Gun (handheld food smoker)
Hickory wood chips

1.Coat the inside of a rocks glass with Absinthe, to add flavor, and pour out the rest. Set glass aside.

2.Into a mixing glass put sugar cube and bitters. Lightly crush the sugar cube until a paste forms on the bottom of the glass. Add half of the garam masala, whisky, ice and stir. Strain the drink into the rocks glass.
