Gin as tonic

I was sitting here, reading through the feed and the odd question crossed my mind.

How much gin does a Killer Yap Lap if a Killer Yap does lap gin?


Killer Yapp is on the wagon after that unfortunate incidinet with the Great Dane triplets in Central Park.



As a bonus, this sounded interesting:

Gin Gin Mule recipe

1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
6 mint sprigs
3/4 oz ginger beer
1 1/2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin
1 splash soda water

Muddle the lime juice, syrup and mint sprigs at the bottom of a mixing glass. Add gin and ginger beer and shake well. Pour over ice in a highball glass, top with soda and garnish with a wedge of lime.

Serve in: Highball Glass

gin with vegetation!
Have you timed how long that takes?
One of the many advantages of gin a la pail is that it's damn quick.
This is medicine girl, stat! stat!

The civil settlement includes a gag order. You'll have to wait for my memoirs. I hear Nan Talese is looking for some.

What's simple syrup?

Miss Snark,
You entertain yourself (and us) so well ("How much gin does a Killer Yap lap..."). You must be getting a lot of crap submitted to you.

How much crap can a Snarky agent zap if a Snarky agent can't lap crap?

That's nasty Eva.

Or should it be,
Or perhaps,

"How much slush
would a snarky agent flush
if a snarky agent could flush
slush?"


BTW, simple syrup is plain sugar syrup.

Actually, simple syrup is sugar that's been dissolved in water. (This is best accomplished with in a saucepan with a little heat. It'll keep for weeks in the fridge.) If you just add the sugar, much will simply fall to the bottom of your glass and not be of much use.

(Before I wrote, I cooked for a living. Trust me; cooks know how to drink.)

Great improvement, Marissa!

Gin and tonic for me. One block of ice, one thin slice of lemon or lime.
