My friend Kate just lost her dear friend and life partner, Vern – this is him in some very fetching sunglasses.
Kate asked me to make a drink in honor of her feline companion, and I’m more than happy to oblige. I never actually met the fellow, but he was practically a Facebook institution and certainly deserves a proper eulogy. And what better way to honor the guy than with a cocktail! I’m sure Vern would approve.
*2 parts Pimm’s No. 1
*1 part St. Germain
*2 parts ginger beer
*1/2 part fresh squeezed lemon juice
It’s tart and tasty, just like Vern. Actually, it’s one of my favorite drinks I’ve made in a while, so I think it’s a perfect way to send Vern off. Kate – come visit us here in Savannah. I promise to make you a bunch of these.
Until next week folks. And for those of you in the Northeast, stay warm! Or just come move down here. We’ve got plenty of room.
