I bought my first Maiden tape off a kid in middle school shop class. It was Indiana, the late 80s: extra-wide skateboards and jean jackets with the sleeves cut off. Somewhere in a strip mall parking lot this is blaring from the back seat of a very used car and it still sounds good.

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST:
- 2 oz. gin
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz. honey syrup
- several dashes of hot sauce
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
