Wednesday Night Special

When you're in the sort of mood where you think, "At least it's Friday," and then remember it's actually Wednesday...

1.5oz Gin
0.25oz Sweet Vermouth
4 dashes Orange Bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
tonic water
ice cube

Now why won't the kids put themselves to bed?

The Wednesday Night Special I'll save for when we unpack at the new pad.

I'm a consummate amateur when it comes to hard liquor, know a little bit more about wines, but know beer backward and forward (thanks to that year in Germany). So, I'm learning...
