Your Weekly Libation

Friday again, jiggety-jig! I’m a wreck at the moment due to a combination of seeing The Simpsons Movie and being a crazy insomniac, but that won’t stop me from recommending a cocktail introduced by–and named after–my brother. I present to you, deceptive in its simplicity:

The Michael.

Just vodka, lemonade, and fruit punch, mixed to whatever intensity you desire. Perfect when you’re drinking for more than just the taste.*

-Jim, out like a light until Monday

*But of course, drink responsibly!

Your Weekly Libation

I’m a proud Chicagoan (okay, okay, former North Shore suburbanite who finds it easier to say Chicagoan), so naturally, this cocktail caught my eye. I’m not usually fan of brandy or bitters, so it’s quite the experiment, but I’ll be giving it a try sometime this weekend. At the very least it gives me an excuse to go to the liquor store.

Chicago Cocktail
2 oz. Brandy
1 dash Bitters
1/4 tsp. Triple Sec

Rub a slice of lemon around the rim of a glass and dip it in powdered sugar. Fill the glass half way with ice. Stir ingredients with ice and strain them into the glass.

Enjoy the drink, folks, and enjoy the weekend. I’ll see you on Monday.

-Jim, wishing we had more cocktail recipes on the site, wink wink nudge nudge
