Long Friday

Today is Good Friday, the beginning of Passover and a full moon.  Accordingly, I am hoping for more room at the bar tonight and no need for dinner reservations tomorrow.  As you can see, I am always an optimist!  But speaking of food...

Please take a look at my blog page on the benefit for the Lower Fairfield County foodbank.  My good friends know this charity as the beneficiary of last year's Rapture Day happy hour pool (we each bet on the exact time (EST) the rapture would occur).  Amazingly, the rapture never came - no one won the pool and the foodbank made out!

This year's tasting is on April 26th and it's $50 for the opportunity to sample the wares of 50 of the areas best restaurants, caterers and beverage purveyors!  Also, 100% of the proceeds go to the foodbank.  I do hope to see you all there!

By the way, the pool for the end of days (2012) will be starting in the fall, giving you all plenty of time to pick the exact hour (again EST) when Last Call on Earth will sound (12/21/12) and we'll all go to that never ending happy hour in the sky.  On the very, very slight chance that the world does not end, the foodbank will be getting another visit from me.  In the meantime, let's drink!

The Historical Inebriant:  Seder Sour

  • 1 1/2 oz  No. 209 Kosher for Passover Gin
  • 1/2 oz Warmed Honey
  • 1/8 oz Kosher for Passover Horseradish 
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • Soda Water
  • Tiny Pinch of Kosher Salt

Add all the ingredients into a mixing tin. Either shake or stir the contents without ice to make sure the honey dissolves into the solution. Add crushed ice, cover and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass, top with a dash of soda water, and garnish with a sprig of parsley.

Whatever your persuasion, I hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend!  See you next week!
