Cat meets Seagull

Thursday was an unusually good day: positive interactions with humans, oh my! (Really, it’s about a job search) with a bonus of battery installation on Drunk Tailor’s Blade Runner watch. We celebrated, of course, with dinner and drinks, because Friday is for early bedtimes this week.

With what, you ask? Well, ask the cat– he’s in charge.

A Seagull, this evening, using up the last of the falernum. It’s also a summery drink, and this is one of the last likely weeks for those.

The recipe, if you please:
1.25 ounces Catoctin Creek Gin (or other herbal gin)
.5 ounce falernum
1 ounce Lillet Blanc
1 ounce lemon juice
Lime wedge

Combine all except lime wedge in a shaker and add ice. Shake until chilled. Pour into cocktail glass or coupe.

(Depending on your palate, you may find this a trifle bitter (lemon juice can do that) and find that adding .25 ounce simple syrup– a splash, really– improves the flavor.)

For the cat, garnish with a wing feather, but for the rest of us, a lime wedge will do.
