Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes
In the tradition of Vodkapundit, I have decided to treat my reader(s) with timely recipies, drink mixes, etc., when I can't think of a damned thing to blog about.
Now that summer's on the horizon, people often ask me (actually, they don't, but play along): "gnotalex, what is a refreshing refreshment that I might enjoy while sitting under the deceased elm tree in my backyard?"
An excellent query. I am partial to those non-alcoholic coolers. True, they too often have that nasty chemical aftertaste, but I think I've discovered the cure for it; or at least, after two or three, you won't notice anymore.
1) Open non-alcoholic cooler.
2) Pour half of it down the sink.
3) Fill remainder with gin (the cheaper, the better).
4) Serve over crushed ice (shaken, not stirred) or neat (swill directly from bottle).
