This week on the Friday Six: comics, Moscow Mules, “jif” or “gif,” and cartoons.
[ ] In the USA, we (typically) consider sweet vermouth a mixer. But for some, it is a pre-meal drink on its own, served neat or with ice (serving size, a couple of ounces).
Much to Stephanie’s amusement, I tried this other method:
“Are you drinking sweet vermouth by itself?!”
“IT’S AN APERITIF…and we’re out of whiskey.” (To make a Manhattan. My “old man” drink as Stephanie calls it).
[ ] Speaking of mixed drinks, a friend talked about making a Moscow Mule on Facebook, and it reminded me of this photo I took a couple of summers ago.
Stephanie and I stopped at Shute’s in Calumet, Michigan during our Upper Peninsula vacation.
