Hell yes – it’s Friday, and y’all know what that means – Cocktail Hour!
So, the night before last the Poop Baggers woke me around 2am when they stumbled home from the bar. They banged and yelled and in general made a ridiculous amount of noise for about a half hour before, I assume anyway, passing out. Unfortunately, by that time I was wide awake. I read a while, and then tried to go back to sleep, and that’s when an idea for a post hit me. I got up, turned on the light, and scrawled out my idea on the back of an envelope before going back to sleep. I have to do this, or I’ll forget. Yesterday I took a look at my note to jog my memory, and it said, “much makeup and the wandering eye.”
What was I referring to? Men with wandering eyes? Women who wear too much makeup, look like whores, and thus cause men with wandering eyes to stare? Or perhaps I was referring to my wandering eye. Who the hell knows? My late night idea could have been the best damn post I would have ever written, but we’ll never know because I decided not to write a full sentence. And though I racked my brain, I never did figure it out, or write a post yesterday. But really, who cares? It’s Friday, boys and girls. And that means Happy Hour is finally here.
The inspiration for today’s cocktail came from Pish Posh, who suggested a number of names for my newest character, one of which I thought would make a mighty fine drink too. So may I present you with a cocktail that will please the side of your personality that wants gin and the one that likes vodka?
In an ice-filled Collins glass pour:
- 1 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
- 1 oz Hendricks Gin
- Top with grapefruit juice
FYI – Grapefruit doesn’t go with Valium, kiddies. So if one of your Sybils is taking a mother’s little helper, use orange juice instead. Wait, no scratch that – skip Happy Hour all together.
