It’s the Friday of the first week of school. I can really use this drink!

I hope that everyone is doing well out there with whatever learning path you chose for your child this year. I am not regretting my choice to send the kids back to their respective schools, but it is sure is stressful while they are gone.
It doesn’t help that we were recently heckled by someone after we left the dentist’s office wearing our masks. I just ignored them because I had Alex with me, and thankfully she didn’t notice because she was in the middle of telling me a long, involved story.
But at least we still have our recipe tests. And our recipe tests contain alcohol.
This guy also had a tough week at work, so we are ready for these drinks!
“This is really good. It reminds me of a Brandy Old-Fashioned, without the cherry flavor.”
The Verdict: Really Good
From The Tasting Notes –
This is a good combination. The extras take the burn out of the brandy and make it very drinkable without being too sweet. One of the patrons over on our Patreon page pointed out that the green color reminds them of the color they dye the river on St. Paddy’s day, which I think is just perfect.
Gonna have to try this one. The green color is a consequence of the blue curaçao. I’ll make it with the dry version “that’s on my shelf and report back.
I’m glad you’re wearing your masks. It helps protect everyone!
I love the shot glass, too. That, with the cool green color of the drink, gives the whole thing a chemistry, Breaking Bad kind of vibe! When you drank it, did you do an Evil Scientist laugh? Muahahaaa!
As for the mask incident, know that you are helping your fellow human beings stay safe and healthy. My husband is in remission from cancer, so he’s in a very high-risk group. I thank you and he thanks you.
Good for you! Protecting your and everyone else’s health is not a political statement, and I thank you for it. What an ass hat. You don’t have to post this. I’m just blowing off angry steam at the universally irrational far right lock step zombies who think trash talking a mother in the company of her children is “Standing up for America!” A pox on all their houses.
Looks delicious. I too was heckled for wearing a mask when I left our local grocery store. Hah! That store REQUIRES you wear a mask. Anyway, the drink looks great.
I was just thinking I bet the dry curaçao would be great! Please let us know!
