Berkeley Skirt Lifter Cocktail

Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone and with it the opportunities to melt your girl’s heart with small boxes of chocolate, flowers, and mushy cards with lace and hearts and such. Oh, you can still try those things, but in many cases it will simply make her think you are cheating on her. So, what is a feller to do? Well, here gents, we have a wonderful little cocktail that we call The Berkeley Skirt Lifter. She will love it. And it is very easy.

The Berkeley Skirt Lifter

☼ 2 oz. gin
☼ 1/2 oz. Bols® Black Raspberry Liqueur
☼ 1/2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice

Shake ingredients together, pour into martini glass whose lip has been finely sugared, serve and enjoy.

Very easy, very tasty. Try one today. On the gin, we used Seagram’s which I think is a very well-constructed inexpensive gin. Leopold’s is an excellent gin if you can find it. Anything with overbearing florals and juniper might not be as good in this drink.

    Shouldn’t this really use something nice like Chambord instead of Bols? Or would that then be a Royal Skirt Lifter…

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L. Mencken

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome
