Tales of the Cocktail Gamely Goes on Without Me…
…and I admire them for it!
The Cocktail Hour in Boston Carries on as Well
It isn’t nearly as much fun as being there, but, then again, I didn’t have to put one smidge of makeup on today. I am both thrilled, and green with envy, reading the posts of my fellow/sister bartenders/bloggers and barflies from Boston who are there.
I’m annointing the virtual cocktail lounge “B4″ which has some appeal…Imagine all the ways you could complete the following sentence:
“I’m going to the Bar B4…(fill-in-the-blank.)”
In honor of the Boston contingency and the “juniperlooza” gin tasting (ten samples plus an exploration of Ernest Hemingway through cocktails), I got my drink on with a new cocktail tonight.
I give you the Cucumber Lemongrass Martini, also known as the “Thai One On”:
For those who actually measure things…I did bring out my little measuring thingee.
1.5 oz Aviation Gin
.5 oz cucumber water
.25 oz lemongrass simple syrup.
Shaken over ice and garnished with Japanese cucumber slice.
