School Supplies? Check.

Mommy needs school supplies, too.

A friend forwarded to me a humorous email that included the line, “There is a Christmas morning for parents and it’s called ‘back to school.’” But now my youngest is off to Kindergarten, making it a bittersweet day.  

So of course my drink this week is also bittersweet. But, as it turns out, I am not especially fond of either bitter or sweet dominating my cocktails.  Oops.

Since I like all the ingredients included, I was sure that I would enjoy the Remember the Maine drink.  Isn’t it annoying when it doesn’t work out that way? I ended up doctoring the mix with a bit of lime juice and grenadine to suit my taste, but I know there are many cocktail drinkers that do like the stronger drinks. This one is for you:

Remember the Maine

2 oz rye whiskey
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
2 teaspoon (10 ml) Cherry Heering
1/2 teaspoon (2 ½ ml) absinthe

Stir in glass with ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

On the other hand, with all those school forms I have yet to complete and sign, I may just need a stiff drink to see me through.

Cheers, ICE
