Hemingway

1-IMG_5805

It’s been one of those days where I’ve done a bad job of both relaxing and being productive.  The worst.  Days like these come to a point where you just can’t seem to turn them around… unless… I may have just the elixir. 

There’s a part of me that knows cocktails on a regular Wednesday is not a wise solution.  A small part.  A part that today, I choose to ignore.  This way to a goooood time.

Hemingway

A cocktail, inspired by the writer of the same name

What you’ll need:

4 tablespoons white rum

a dash maraschino liqueur

2 tablespoons grapefruit juice

juice of 1/2 lime

2 tablespoons of simple (sugar) syrup

Ice (crushed, preferably)

Here’s how:

  • Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with the ice
  • Shake well
  • Strain into a chilled cocktail glass (like the ones in the picture) and drop in a maraschino cherry

In Philly every summer, about 50 different bars and restaurants host "Center City Sips" on Wednesdays. $3 wine, $4 cocktails and half priced apps at places all over the city. So, don't think you're doing anything bad drinking on a Wednesday!

Cocktails on a Wednesday are ALWAYS a good idea!
