JC's ALL CAPS (a cocktail).

I just now invented a cocktail. I really wanted a glass of wine, but there weren't none in the house. Faced with a gigantic pile of dishes and no dishwasher, my cocktail was born of necessity. I checked the pantry but all I could find was a cheap bottle of Sangria someone had left at one of our parties...and some scotch. BLEGH.

I decided to raid the canned goods shelf; and lo, nestled between the Chinese rice wine vinegar and the coconut puree was a glass container of homemade raspberry liqueur, a gift from my Aunt back in 2007 (it has a label!). Beside it: Poire William.

Here's mah recipeh:

Mostly raspberry liqueur...say, 2 oz.
Same for Poire William, 2 oz.
One quick grind of pepper - don't put too much.
6 cubes of ice.

Put it all into a shaker thingie. Shake it up. Pour through a strainer thingie into a really nice glass. Garnish with a couple of raspberries. Drinksies.

YOU WILL BE ALL CAPS FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.



If you don't have raspberry liqueur just use whatever. And if you don't have Poire William...go to the shops and buy a bottle of wine.

Oh gee, I wonder if this is original...

Does it matter? LET THE ALL CAPS BEGIN!
