Thirsty Thursday

The drink of the week is the Monkey Gland:

2oz gin
1oz orange juice
1/2oz Pernod
Dash grenadine

Shake ingredients and pour.

Despite the name, the Monkey Gland is a pleasant, if unique, drink, good for the early sunsets of Fall. Non-drinkers can eliminate the gin and replace the Pernod with a licorice-flavored beverage (I don't know that any exist, but there must be one). Enjoy.

N.B. Contrary to rumor, American-sold Pernod contains no wormwood (alas!) and is therefore distinct from absinthe. Absinthe has been banned in the US since the early twentieth century and it seems likely that the ban will continue indefinitely:(.

Fishfrog, you and your associated "web-loggin" community have disappointed me greatly today. I count on your constant supply of distractions to prevent me from accidentially getting some work done.
