I promise to get up “U.K. Drinks: Part Two” soon (Part One’s below if you missed it), but to tide you over until that time (a time that’s, honestly, dependant on whether or not I can quit watching the new Robots in Disguise video for “The Tears” over and over), here are three cocktails for you to sip from the drinker’s blogosphere.
Remember the Maine: Over at Oh Gosh! you’ll find two variations (one drier) of this rye-based cocktail, which is from one of my favorite books, Charles H. Baker’s The Gentleman’s Companion. If you don’t try both, you’ll only have yourself to blame. And that would be a sorry way to spend the weekend.
Damson Gin: Okay, you won’t be able to drink the results of this recipe from The Spirit World this weekend, but darnit, if you don’t start now, you won’t be able to drink it any weekend. Which would be a crazy shame. And you don’t want to be crazy, do you? At least not the kind of crazy that doesn’t have their own homemade Damson Gin to drink.
