History

I was inspired to riff on the Poet's Dream after thinking about how well Benedictine and apricot go together. Besides adding apricot liqueur to the classic, I swapped the dry vermouth for a dry sherry. For a name, I kept the poet theme and dubbed this one Not Even the Rain after a line from an ee cummings poem.
