It is hard to watch a team falter. We refer here to the early innings of Game 6, 2014 World Series. The San Francisco Giants aren’t pitching, fielding, or batting well. Kansas City Royals playing hard, pushing hard, are up 8-0 and it’s only the 4th. As long time San Franciscans this is a time for weeping, wailing and divine intervention. We seek to propitiate the gods of baseball with orange-flavored vodka, Drambuie, and, of course, prayer.
2 ounces orange-flavored vodka
1/4 ounce Drambuie
1/2 ounce orange juice
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir gently and carefully for 20 seconds. You may chant Pan-da or Tim-my while doing this. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a long strand of orange peel.
Tasting notes: Deep comforting orange with a hint of victory
Tomorrow: Crescent cocktail
