Siren Call


Recommended Posts

Well, it's almost time for the siren to sound again, so I'm starting to pack up my desk for the day.

Tomorrow's our last day--though we'll be back to visit your regular forum. Promise. You guys have been great.

We still haven't come up with a new cocktail for you guys, either. May I buy us a little more time? We'll post a recipe on your regular boards soon.

Anyway, I point out that tomorrow is Friday in case we've left any questions unanswered that I haven't spotted (I've been through the whole list a few times and can't see anything). Please let us know if there's anything else you'd like answered.

And if any of you would like to receive our newsletter, Ardent Spirits, along with regular links to my bi-weekly column in the SF Chronicle, just sign up at www.ardentspirits.com.

Cheers, Gary

“The practice is to commence with a brandy or gin ‘cocktail’ before breakfast, by way of an appetizer. Subsequently, a ‘digester’ will be needed. Then, in due course and at certain intervals, a ‘refresher,’ a ‘reposer,’ a ‘settler,’ a ‘cooler,’ an ‘invigorator,’ a ‘sparkler,’ and a ‘rouser,’ pending the final ‘nightcap,’ or midnight dram.” Life and Society in America by Samuel Phillips Day.

While I haven't asked any questions, I've been following your Q&A with great interest and enjoyment. Thank you so much for spending the time with us.

When you do get to developing our cocktail, may I sugges you post it hereRecipeGullet in the cocktail section? :smile: Of course, I'm happy to post it to the archive for you as well. :biggrin:

Thanks again!

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

Will do, Marlene!
