A Pleasant Walk in the Park, or The Deeper Meaning Behind Wild Squirrel Sex

April 1, 2013. I put on my temporary neck tattoo and rode my velocipede down to Powell’s bookstore the other day. Luckily, there’s designated parking throughout most of downtown Portland for velocipedes, and I took the next to last one available. Dodging through the mass of newspaper sellers, itinerant players of Trevelyan’s Rocker, and stand-ins for the cover of Shearwater’s magnificent album “Rook”, I quickly found my way up to the rare book room. I often visit this room for some peace and solitude, as all the books in this room are over $20.

While idly browsing the stacks of books, I was startled to find one pushed to the back of the shelf, as if someone had wanted to hide the book from the gaze of mere mortals. Even more startling, the cover was not affixed with multitudes of bird stickers. Though the print was barely legible, I could make out that it was a Eighteenth century book of “Divers Receipts for the Manufacture, Blending and Drinking of Chymically-Flavoured Neutral Grain Spirits at Modest Proof”. Knowing my velocipede was safely parked outside and that I had removed the seat, the large wheel, the tires and the chain to deter thieves, I settled down to peruse the curious little book.

    This doesn't seem quite there yet. I assumed whiskey with a 'e' didn't mean Scotch so used Evan Williams bourbon. To me it's a little flat and metallic - some expressed orange zest helped. Maybe reduce the absinthe and go for a non-Punt vermouth?

  • Re The Hallelujah, 1 day 19 hours ago drinkingandthinking commented:

    It's okay but basically just tastes like the ingredients rather than a carefully balanced cocktail.

  • Re The Bloodborne of Beverages, 2 days 15 hours ago M.grandiflora commented:

    Love everything about this drink. Perfectly balanced.

  • Re The Cableknit, 3 days 9 hours ago jensck commented:

    Seriously strange. Maybe it's because I used a different coffee liqueur (Tempus Fugit), but I'm not sure these flavors work together.

  • Re String Theory, 3 days 10 hours ago stirred commented:

    Good winter vibes. Same vein as Left Hand and Black Lodge. Add to rotation.
