Happiness in a subscription
One of the little mags I get delivered regulary to the Lair (Enrique, please wait to let me read it first - I detect drool bumps on some pages) is the wonderful "Imbibe".
Imbibe. Will now replace lickety-split as my new favorite word. It can be a command: "Imbibe!", a toast "To all, imbibe", a suggestion "imbibe?", a past tense question in the morning: "imbibed?".
This month's issue carries this little treat for a special you-know-who:
How to make a Planet of the Apes
3/4 oz. 99 Bananas (99 proof banana liqueur- ha cha cha!!!!)
1-1/4 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice
1-1/4 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. lime juice, fresh-squeezed
1-1/2 oz. dark Appleton Estates Jamaican rum
shake ingredients well with plenty of crushed ice, whilst saying 'Git yer hands off me, you damned dirty ape!' or 'Damn you, damn you all to hell', or 'man is pestilence' or whatever your fave POTA quote may be.
Serve in a Tom Collins glass with a garni of banana slice speared to a cherry and a peruvian kovachii orchid, if available.
