Quick… list them on eBay!

.

On our way home from our scenic drive the other day we stopped for a cocktail ( or two ).

.

.

Repeat after me… martinis are not made with rum. Nope. Uh uh. Never. Cherry Gin Ricky it is.

.

.

Nice flavor, but a little too sweet so I asked the bartender to dial back the grenadine on #2. Bartenders are wonderful people, so helpful and attentive to our needs.

Cocktails with my husband always requires food, so he ordered mussels while I opted for Truffle fries. Both were yummy but the real news? Even after I declined ketchup, 3 packets made their way to our table.

.

Oh, the extravagance! After the waitress said she couldn’t take them back due to Covid rules… and when my husband remembered there was a shortage causing people to list them on eBay for $15 per… he scooped them up and brought them home. Where they’ll languish in the drawer until the next global pandemic lockdown.

  1. There is still a ketchup shortage? Oh, I didn’t remember since I don’t use it much. But, no picture of the truffle fries? Oh and that habanero margarita looks like it’s just up my alley. 🍹🍹🍹🍹

  2. I trained as a union bartender in Reno, wat back in 19**, (but post stone age) where martini’s had 1/3 vermouth in them, and rickies were always Bombay gin and Roses Lime Juice, which was a bit sweet and syrupy … it was stirred and strained.
    None of us could conceive of the mixologists apostasies of today. How far the tradition has strayed from its pure roots. Can a rum margarita be afar off?

  3. I’m strictly a beer guy, and all this martini/margarita talk is starting to make me feel like I’m hardly worthy of following such a high class blog. May I make a suggestion for future posts:

      1. That’s strange — I clicked the link and still got MORE BEER (a song by the Andrews Sisters). How Amy got in on the act, I don’t know….but I’d rather have MORE BEER.
