First weekend in June

Had a lovely time spending too much at the fancy-pants liquor store, eating deep-fried things at the semi-dive bar, examining pretentious art and contemplating my toes with felines.

How was your weekend?

  2. Hey, you scored the Maraschino and the Creme de Violette! Have you mixed a batch of Aviations yet? We generally restrict ourselves to Saturday night (or dinner out at the fried artichoke joint which has a full bar) because these pack a serious wallop, but then we aren't as bouncy as we once were. In any case I hope your birthday celebration has an Aviation in the mix.

  3. Re Pimm's: they used to make five or six variants, based on different kinds of spirit--rm, Scotch, etc. There was a brandy-based one (Pimm's No. 5? maybe) that I liked with soda, over ice, with a twist, on warm summer afternoons. I think they just make No. 1 (rum?) now.

    Cointreau I find too sweet to drink straight; it's a nice little orange-y addition to mixed drinks or desserts e.g. chocolate mousse.
