Favorite Cocktails, & how best to enjoy them
An unranked list.
- •The perfect Gin & TonicTake the heat of summer, a DMB concert at the Gorge, a gazillion people, heat stroke, & general craziness. Mix together, & let chill under the stars. Serve with a splash of David Grey. Then decide the best gin & tonic will be a life-long pursuit.
- •The Dirty MartiniListen to people tell you vermouth should barely kiss the gin. Let them French kiss instead. Use olives stuffed with garlic. Let the ice chips float in the glass. Hang out with your sister.
- •The Tom & JerryThe hearth at Christmas, a healthy blend of family togetherness & rancor. Is it a good idea to drink uncooked egg product? Add more mix.
- •The Jalapeño MargaritaDecide to spend one summer pretending to be a mixologist. Pick one type of alcohol per month, & find recipes to fit the topic. Serve meals which enhance the cocktail. Be in a relationship with someone who loves Mexican food & tequila. Take photographs of jalapeños steeping in tequila in a mason jar.
