Since this was a slow news day, I thought I'd ask for educated guesses... I'm attempting to reserve a room for a watch party on Oct. 9th and feel confident that the game will be a 3:30PM start time. Is there any reason I should be worried that it will start at noon instead?
Thanks, I'll hang up and listen.
First off, I would like to note that though I've prefaced this OT, I don't believe alcohol should be OT on this board. Hell if we don't love our boozahol.
Anyhow, I think I've found the perfect drink.
I have a poster up in my kitchen. It is old... old. I think it was originally a place mat at a bar somewhere or something. It's kind of wood-grain, and it has cocktail suggestions on it, with a neat little drawing of each. I found it taped to the inside of a cupboard door in the garage of the family cabin on Long Lake near Reading, MI, and it is at least as old as when the garage WAS the cabin, which is at least 60 years and four owners ago. Probablky more.
Anyhow, I occasionally make one of the drinks off of this thing, because it has the recipies on it, too. Tonight I made a "Ward 8". Actually, 3 Ward 8's. I've not heard of this drink before.
1 and 1/4 oz lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 jigger rye or bourbon (I used bourbon. No rye on hand)
Shake all ingredients together with ice and pour unstrained into a 10 oz glass. Top off with Claret wine.
WHOO! Good stuff.
Thought you'd like to know.
