So welcome to The People Of The Book Cocktail Party.
Some lefties might call us 'old fashioned' but rather we have a strong sense of history. After all, we appreciate that 'There's nothing new under the sun'.
Old FashionedThere are many differences between we people of the book and the Johnny-come-latelies from the 7th Century:
2 oz blended whiskey
1 sugar cube
1 dash bitters
1 slice lemon
1 slice orange
Combine the sugar cube, bitters and one teaspoon of water in an old-fashioned glass. Mix well, add blended whiskey and stir. Add a twist of lemon peel and ice cubes. Add slices of orange and lemon and top with the cherry. Serve with a swizzle stick.
Camel BasherBut there are a number of key differences. The most fundamental of which is we believe that Jesus is all he purports to be.
1 part orange juice
1 part vodka
1 dash grenadine syrup
Add orange juice, vodka and grenadine. Mix thoroughly. The correct mix will give a drink which is between pink & orange in colour. Serve in a beer mug.
The Resurrection Cocktail (aka I See Dead People)And hey, you've got to love a Messiah who turns on the high quality plonk.
1/2 oz high proof rum
1 oz Absolut vodka
1/2 oz whisky
Serve in equal parts in a 2-oz shot glass.
