intoxicating.

Standard

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.”

vin and tang.

 i bought both of these 

on the same shopping trip

if I drink the two of them

can I call it

even?

 each is fermented after all

can i call it

a truce?

perfect balance?

harmony?

 

“there’s eternal opposition between yin and yang.

no third party at all, but treason occurs sometimes.”

grape and grain.

Standard

whiling away the day

at the casual and welcoming

houses of grape and grain

“come, gentlemen, i hope we shall drink down all unkindness.”
