So I'm theoretically on spring break. HAH!
I have 3 papers and 1 more art project to finish. (I kinda cut off the corner of my index finger a few weeks ago on another art project so I've been catching up now that it's healing.)

Anyways - in the meantime, I've been having fun with a new discovery: Lillet
Kinda like vermouth, but doesn't get me sick like vermouth does.

Anyways - I fell in love with the HoopLa (a variant of a Sidecar). But I've been experimenting and came up with two really good ones:

noname 1
Jameson Irish Whiskey (half shot)
1 1/2 shots lillet
1 shot cointreau
juice of 1/2 lemon

Corpse Reviver 2 (which I tried tonight and made by "accident")
Add the following to a "shaker" of ice
Shot of gin (bombay sapphire)
shot and a half or two shots of lillet
juice of half a lemon
half shot of cointreau
1 or 2 dashes of absinthe (optional)

stir (don't shake) and strain to pour into a martini glass. Fresh and light tasting and yummy. Not oversweet. Yum!

You may want to play with the Vesper, too. It's gin, vodka, and Lillet. It was invented by James Bond in the book Casino Royale, but, as some of the ingredients in the book are no longer manufactured, you can play around with stuff.

The usual starting point these days is equal parts gin and vodka, and Lillet Blanc. In the book, it's much more gin than vodka, and Kina Lillet, which is no longer made.
