.75 oz. rye

4 dashes Peychaud's aromatic bitters
Stir with ice, strain (up or rocks), garnish cherry or lemon twist or both

Beautiful reverb on her voice on penultimate song. Sweet. Solo la Pido a Dios so connected to her audience. Beyond soulful

Many thanks for a great show Sheila B. and for introducing me to Mercedes Sosa, especially "Vidala De La Soledad" (and thank you to your friend for translating it.)
It was so moving to hear the crowd in "Sólo Le Pido a Dios" and to read the lyrics along. By now, we're all so exhausted, but we also ask <Que el dolor no me sea indiferente .

thank you so much for your show -- I love your passion and curiosity. I learn so much. big hugs from Kamloops, B.C Canada
