Sometimes my beau and I stay home for Date Night, maybe order out Chinese, pop in a DVD of an old classic move, and mix a drink.
We did this recently, and we tried an old timey drink from a 1948 Trader Vic’s Bartender Guide I picked up at an estate sale for a twenty-five cents.
As you can see, it’s simple to make, and it’s pretty:
The bitters are what you smell when you bring your nose to your glass, then as you sip on the cream to the blue curaçao, the drink becomes a blush of orange fruit-tasting goodness.
Thirty seconds later, my beau says, “Can I have another?”
Ha ha. Sure. With only a half ounce of liquor in each drink, it’s a nice after dinner drink.
Here’s to you! Sláinte! Na zdrowie!
