I don’t remember when I’ve needed a drink this bad – I don’t care what it is as long as it goes down easy and makes me sleep. Dad never drinks anything but Jim Beam – ugh – but there’s got to be something in this liquor cabinet that hasn’t been guzzled down by my brother. Let’s see … some cheap port, chartreuse (gag me)  Angostura bitters (that stuff lasts forever), peach schnapps, amaretto … oh, wait, there’s a little bit of vodka left in this bottle – Jamie must have missed it stuck all the way in the back. Mom sure loved her vodka gimlets … what I’m mixing up is nowhere near as genteel …

The Disaster Cocktail

To create a Disaster:

Combine in a rocks glass over ice

2 oz. vodka

1 oz. each peach brandy and amaretto

3 shakes Angostura bitters

Stir, then fill the glass the rest of the way with Mountain Dew

    I’m working on a cocktail featuring the sublime soft drink Moxie. Perhaps I should call a Nor’eastah?
