happy national cocktail day
in this era of zoom happy hours, the quarantini, and more than lots of stay home time
what have you been mixing up in your quarantine cave?
do you find yourself using
whatever you can scrounge up in your kitchen?
is your go-to
a cornhattan, pickled okra and tonic, dandelion/parsley wine, a salsa sour?
what have you managed to blend, shake, mix, mash, stir, or sling together
to create your new signature drink?
all cocktails and mocktails welcome here.
“life is a crazy mixture of intoxicating cocktails.”

i bought both of these
on the same shopping trip
if I drink the two of them
can I call it
each is fermented after all
can i call it
“there’s eternal opposition between yin and yang.
no third party at all, but treason occurs sometimes.”
whiling away the day
at the casual and welcoming
houses of grape and grain
“come, gentlemen, i hope we shall drink down all unkindness.”

with a hundred possible self-serve drink combinations,
what could possibly go wrong?
all that we have to do is choose all of them.
