Day 191, Cocktail 189

Even before the day began I knew that we were screwed.  As if it really matters which bozos are running the show in Washington or your state’s capital.  I “love” (that’s dripping with sarcasm, by the way) all the Republicans who say that they are going to change the way business is done in Washington.  Really?  Which party was in charge when about 75% of the current total national debt was rung up?  Oh, right, Republicans.  Don’t get me wrong, the Democrats aren’t any better.  Which is why it was easy to name tonight’s cocktail

  We’re Screwed

  • 2 oz Russell’s Reserve Rye whiskey
  • 1 oz Drambuie
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 6-8 good dashes of Agnosturo orange bitters

Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir to chill and mix.  Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a lemon twist.

I love what the orange bitters does in this drink.  It just comes alive and nearly leaps out of the glass and says “hey, I taste great!”.  The combination of the bitters and Drambuie really complements the rye extremely well.  I can tell I’m going to have a lot of fun playing with the orange bitters this winter.  It sure beats watching what the jackasses in Washington do!



  1. Very astute commentary, Stan, in just a few words. Ahh, brevity is the soul of wit! And we’ll have to take a stab at the cocktail, too. Just another reason to have Drambuie around!

    • Drambuie has solved many of my problems, especially when mixed with Scotch!
