Somebody Chime In With Gin…or Vodka…or Rum Recipes

This just in from a very creative disher. Talk about throwing down the gauntlet:

I liked your post about Labor Day-themed cocktails yesterday and was wondering if anyone had ideas. I have come up with some names, but feel at a loss when it comes to actually concocting an interesting drink. Anyone want to come up with a drink to match the following names?

First-Monday Muddle

Grover Cleavland’s Compromise

The Pullman Strike

The Haymarket Affair

End of Summer Swizzler

Samuel Gompers Dream

Wobblies’ Wobbler

Yellow-Dog Contract

The New Deal

White Shoe Sayonara

Jimmy Hoffa Locator

C’mon people. It’s the Friday before a long weekend. Let’s procrastinate by designing some drinks in the comments section! I will personally concoct the best of the best and detail the expereince in words (and pictures if possible) on Tuesday.

One comment on “Somebody Chime In With Gin…or Vodka…or Rum Recipes

  1. Grover Cleveland’s Compromise

    Came up with this when I was out of Gin…

    3 oz Vodka (Tito’s works nicely)
    .5 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
    .5 oz Green Chartreuse
    small stem of rosemary for garnish

    In a mixing glass over large ice cubes add all liquid and stir until cold. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
    Smack Rosemary firmly in the palm of your hand a couple of times and rub on the outside of the glass below the rim.
