There was so much activity on this old blog from February that we were compelled to create a sequel. I mentioned in front of my daughter that we had an inordinate number of views on this blog and, when I told her that the Sisters and the allusion to the recipes was from The Waltons, she suggested that maybe some students somewhere were assigned homework related to The Waltons. Well, it's as plausible as any theory I can come up with.
The Garnet Mine
1 part gin
2 parts raspberry liqueur

Shake over ice and garnish with a cherry.
Shame on us. On Monday, November 7, the grand, new Champlain Bridge between Crown Point, NY and Addison, VT opened to traffic. Soaring over Lake Champlain with steely strength, a drink to celebrate the occasion is in order.
2 parts Grand Marnier
1 part Crown Royal
Shake with ice and strain into a jigger or shot glass, or serve over ice in a rocks glass.
Cheers & Bottoms Up!
