What I’m Drinking: Up In Mabel’s Room

What you do, friends, when you’re up in anyone’s room isn’t any of my business. I like to keep those things under wrap, so to speak. However, if you’re drinking an Up in Mabel’s Room cocktail, which is from Dark Spirits, and which is a dreamy number combining rye, grapefruit juice, and simply syrup, then, well, it’s a bit of my business, cause I want you to be using the below recipe so your life is better. Cause that’s what I want for you. Oh, one more thing (since I’m being so serious). You should know that having a few of these with a certain someone will probably (94.3% probable) have you ending up in a room together, snuggling. Or whatever you kids do. And now you know.
