First, I am sorry I have been lax posting here and elsewhere. I had no freakin’ idea that being a band parent was going to be so demanding of my time.
I can hear The Queen and BC already laughing at me.
Second, I’m trying to get Eldest’s stuff squared away and stored properly. I had no freakin’ idea she left so much laundry to do.
I can hear Hubby laughing at me.
Anyway, this week’s feature is a bit on the Dark Side™. But it has whiskey and cherries, so I have that going for me, which is nice. It comes by way of ThreadSence and it’s awesome.
- 1 oz. Whiskey
- 1 oz. Cherry juice
- ½ oz. Amaretto
- ½ oz. Brandy
- 2 oz Cherry soda
- Five maraschino cherries
Muddle the cherries in an old fashioned glass. Pour the whiskey, juice, brandy, and amaretto into an ice-filled shaker, and shake well. Pour into glass, and top off with the soda. Garnish with more cherries if you so wish. I omit the brandy and increase the soda, and use fresh pitted cherries, preferably Bing. They are sweeter, in my opinion. But you can just omit all but the whiskey and go from there
Presented without comment.
I have been a fan of pairing raspberries and peaches, so this screamed at me to be picked up. Honestly, I was going to make something with it last night so I could post about it, but I ran out of time. Eldest leaves soon, and she is my priority right now. Most of y’all despise fruity girlie drinks anyway, so just consider this your open thread for the week
