tv show: justified

Justified, one of the finest shows on television, has ended. Let’s raise a glass.

You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive [ Recipe ]
• 2oz Old Crow Bourbon
• .5oz Apple Pie Moonshine
• 7 drops Barbecue Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a small Mason jar filled with cracked ice. Stir until frosty, serve.

Why the Name? Justified closed it’s seasons with various renditions of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive”, and, as the song implies, many characters didn’t.

Why the Ingredients? This cocktail is a nod to the great characters, alive and dead, who appeared throughout the series. Old Crow Bourbon for Dewey and the rest of the Crowe clan, apple pie moonshine for Mags Bennett and her brood, and a little heat from Limehouse in the form of barbeque bitters.

Just finished watching the series finale of Justified

I can’t get over it. I can’t believe this show barely won any awards and was barely mentioned. If I didn’t think Timothy Olyphant invented sex appeal, I would never have watched but it was immensely satisfying, well written, beautifully acted. Walter Goggins, specifically, has been supremely robbed of award nominations. He’s an incredible actor.
