Good morning, All. ’tis the Tuesday before Christmas. David and I had intend to publish the 3rd part of David’s The Robot Apocalypse today, yet, overseas travel on his part and pre-holiday break work stress on my part kind of threw a monkey wrench into our plans. Oh well, part 3 will definitely be online next Tuesday and should you have missed the first two parts – here they are: Part #1 and Part #2.
To stay true to the RobotApocalypse I am sharing with you today a recipe, to be precise a cocktail recipe and, of course, photos of it.
At my office’s Christmas party we always have a ‘yankee swap’ where you could end up with anything from totally awesome to absolutely useful, but the best part is the fun of it all. This year, I got lucky and ended up with a set of colored glasses, which I really liked. They could be used for any cold drink e.g. water, soda juice or, in this case here, a cocktail.
This is a very easy, but somewhat strong cocktail, a Martini or Gibson, in my case – dry. The recipe is so easy, it is hardly worth noting, but here we go.
- 2 parts gin of your choice - mine is Bombay Sapphire
- 1 part vermouth - my choice is Noilly Prat
- olives or onions
- place ice cubes in a tumbler
- fill gin over them
- add the vermouth
- place lid on tumbler and shake for 10 seconds
- optional - add ice cube(s) to your glass
- pour into your cocktail glass
- add olives to make a Martini or
- add onions to make a Gibson
Cheers! Quite literally and because it is way, way too early I will now go back to my coffee. Have a wonderful day!
If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
