Messing around with the home bar this past Saturday, I stumbled upon something tasty. No doubt someone has gotten there first, it’s too simple in this day and age. These days it feels like you have to infuse bourbon with something wacky just to get a sniff of originality, but never the less, I present what I’m sure someone else has already presented.

No Name (English Rose would be good if it weren’t taken)
2 oz. Gin
1 oz. Lemon Juice
.5 oz Apricot Brandy
.5 oz Ruby Porto

Standard prep, put in a mixer and shake with ice.

It’s maybe a little sweet for my tastes, but it is very pretty.

Also on the subject of drinks. Someone needs to fat wash vodka with schmaltz. Would it be tasty? Somehow I doubt it. Would it be funny? Yes. Serve chilled and neat with a nervous twist.
