In keeping with the celebration of America's Independence Day, we consulted our Four Fathers (Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Johnny Walker and Jose Cuervo) for inspiration.
The Constitution of Happy Hour in the High Peaks
We the people of the Adirondacks, in order to form a more perfect cocktail, establish drunkenness, insure domestic camaraderie, provide for the common intoxication, promote general cheer, and secure blessings of inebriation to ourselves and our swill, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the High Peaks.
We present to you the Happy Hour in the High Peaks First Amendment or the Bill of Rights:
Freedom to imbibe
Freedom to slur our speech
Freedom to blog
Freedom to gather with friends
Freedom of inebriation
Then we're pretty sure the framers of the Constitution must have proposed a toast. We came up with the Bomb Pop:
Cream of Coconut (available at WalMart and other fine supermarkets)
Pour the Cream of coconut into a shot glass. Carefully pour the grenadine on top of the coconut. Very slowly drip or drizzle the blue curacao over a spoon to float it on top of the grenadine.
Our Lake Placid trip yielded a new addition to Pammie's Pub: 46 Peaks Vodka. It is yearning to breathe free, so we shall continue our celebration on this the most austere of occasions in our nation's history in an attempt to liberate the contents of that bottle. Check back later, as there may be some fireworks involved. Not that we New Yorkers are intelligent enough to handle them.
Cheers & Bottoms Up!
