Three cocktails for your evening whine-down
Let’s whine it down a notch. Here are three cocktails to savor with your evening newspaper tonight.
1. The Kneel Before Zod - For those less-than-thrilled Reagan conservatives now stuck with their president-elect Zod.
Based on the original cocktail called the Millionaire Mix:
2 oz rye whiskey 1/2 oz grenadine 1/2 oz curacao 1 egg white Dash of Pernod
Shake the rye whiskey, grenadine, curaçao and egg white together over ice cubes. Strain into whine glass and add the dash of Pernod. Serve on a kryptonite coaster.
2. The Cordless Screwdriver - This is a shooter style version of the famous Screwdriver in honor of Bernie Sanders, the protective guard dog who will have the balls to keep speaking his mind without fear or favor.
2 oz chilled vodka Orange wedge Super fine sugar
Pour the chilled vodka into a shot glass. Dip a wedge of orange into the superfine sugar. Down the vodka and suck on the orange. Feel the Bern? Now go out there and walk that talk.
3. The classic Manhattan - For the city that keeps taking the hits but still stands due to its resilience, passion and diversity.
Cracked Ice Dash of Angostura bitters 3 oz rye whiskey 1 oz sweet vermouth Cocktail cherry
In a mixing glass stir the bitters, whiskey and vermouth over cracked ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and top with a cherry. Then grab a cab downtown and make one for our lady liberty. She needs one.
