Well, Fall is here, and as is tradition, so is pumpkin flavoring. Pumpkin flavored everything. Coffee, cake, cookies, water, pumpkins…the list goes on and on. And on. (Until December rolls around, which it’s then immediately replaced with peppermint.) Anyway, despite my prejudice against the sickening cascade of pumpkin that’s about to descend upon us all, it’s Reading Days! So relax, sit out on a porch somewhere before it gets too cold, and watch the leaves change color while you still can. Or before you have to finally get to all that work you’re actively ignoring right now. Here’s a drink to complement the perfect weather and the fact that we (pretend we) don’t have any work to do:
1.5 oz of alcohol (whiskey or rum works well)
2 sugar packets (presumably taken from Peirce)
3 oz of club soda or ginger ale
3-5 oz of apple juice
Add lemon juice for flavor.
Stir it all together and enjoy. Before it somehow becomes pumpkin flavored.
