Tipsy Tuesday

(pic courtesy VI203)
Okay. So maybe I can't stop at one. I have to bring you another round [humor your hostess] - it is Tipsy Tuesday, all! And you're sure to go ape for this cocktail . . .

The Monkey Gland
[maybe it's better that we don't trouble anyone for the whys and hows here]
  • 1-1/2 ounces dry gin
  • 1-1/2 ounces orange juice [squeeze your own - the fresher the juice, the funkier the monkey]
  • 1 teaspoon real pomegranate grenadine
  • 1 teaspoon absinthe or pastis [an anise-flavored booze - good 'n plenty-esque]

Shake vigorously in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a small cocktail glass.

Go ahead, go bananas - and pour another!

(thanks to Vintage Cocktails and Hidden Spirits for this dandy elixir idea)
