Girlie Drink of the Week

Last week’s offering made me nostalgic for the old days, when women wore gloves and dressed to travel and when men had a bar in the office. I was watching an old Columbo movie about a murderer whose alibi involves his lover dressed as his wife taking a flight, and all I could think of was “Holy cow!! Look at the space between the seats and the ashtrays and THEY ARE DRINKING COCKTAILS!!”



  • 2 parts gin
  • 1 part maraschino liqueur
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • ½ part violet liqueur

Pour ingredients into an ice-filled shaker and mix well. Strain into a coupe, and garnish with cherries if desired. The violet liqueur gives the drink the look of a clear sky.

Your head will be a bit fuzzy, though 🙂

  1. Might have to give this one a try!! And will have to find a Navy blue martini glass, with gold pipping … for Naval Aviation of course. (And pass one along to the Master Chief.) Oh… and on a completely unrealted note…the midshipmen are 0-5 so far!! Go NAVY!!
