Sunday’s meeting turned out to be a mini-meet. Considering I was tuckered out, and it was dreary and rainy outside, that was A-OK with me.

The theme was women in sports, the drink selection was:

Blood & Sand (for beach volleyball players)
1 tbsp. Orange Juice
1/2 oz. Scotch
1/2 oz. Cherry Brandy
1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Brandy (Chastain) Cocktail

50ml Cognac
10ml Cointreau
2 dashs of Angostura bitters

Stir ingredients with ice and strain into a frozen Martini glass,
Garnish with an orange zest.

(Althea) Gibson

2 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce dry vermouth

Stir with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cocktail
onion.

Golf Cocktail

2 – 3 oz. Gin
3/4 oz. Dry Vermouth
2 dash Bitters

Combine in a mixing glass or shaker. Stir with ice and strain into
chilled cocktail glass.


Gatorade
(not classic, but ties in so well with the theme)

1/2oz. Vodka
1/2oz. Southern Comfort
1/2oz. Midori
1/2oz. Amaretto
1oz. Sweet&Sour
1oz. 7up–add after shaking above ingredients!!!

Build drink over ice in a highball glass. Shake glass-then add 7up.
Garnish with a lemon and cherry.

The bar didn’t have some of the ingredients. So, of those, we only managed to tackle (so to speak) the Gatorade and the Golf / Gibson. Shirley Temple tried the Gatorade. The verdict was:

Bartender: a multivitamin
Shirley Temple: a Pixie Stick
Delilah: the white part of those rocket-shaped lollipops

Golf / GibsonI tried the Golf / Gibson. I say it that way, because it was really a blend of the two. It was basically the Golf, with cocktail onions.

I think our dear bartender accidentally combined the two recipes. The result was a bitter (thanks to the bitters) AND sour (thanks to the pickled onions) beverage. In other words, icky.

Other than that, we dined on some of Amsterdam’s fine appetizers and chit chatted a bit about our upcoming event. (More on that later!)

Cheers!
