Working from home pitfall #256 – Doctor Who marathon on BBCA from Saturday that I just found on the Tivo. Hello, readers! Welcome to another Friday edition of the Lunchtime Poll, where we make you do all the work so I can think impure thoughts about David Tennant. In honor of Friday, today’s poll question wants to know your favorite cocktail recipe. In yet another one of my Liberal Arts Degree Holder’s Explorer Program jobs, I tended bar at a dive Han Solo would love. I was the daytime bartender, so there was never anyone there. In my boredom, I bleached the men’s room from dive bar gray and yellow back to white and invented drinks. (With a good handwashing in between.) Most of the drinks I made were terrible, but a few winners made it out, including this little number:
Chocolate Covered Cherry
Drizzle a bit of cherry brandy in the bottom of a shot glass.
Pour in about half a shot of Creme de Cacao, pour over the back of a spoon so it rests on top of the cherry brandy.
Top off with Irish cream.
The drink in the picture is, of course, a Mojito and not a chocolate covered cherry.
