It’s like a room temp toddy… Amaretto Sour

I don’t often go for sweet drinks but I’ve had a good score of these in my life.

Feeling festive, I picked up a bottle of Disarronno last week. I have a nagging cough this week, so I made this. Well, this is what’s left:


I didn’t feel like making simple syrup, though it REALLY is simple. I just wanted some lemony booze for this throat soreness:

1t fine sugar
1oz lemon juice
2oz Disarronno

Shake it like a Polaroid picture.


Bike Tours are a bit like being the last horse in a trail ride

I thought that I posted about this already but must’ve dreamt it…

(link goes to a brief video of my ride…see? Windy!)

I felt rather jealous of the happy tourists, riding in these rickshaws! There’s got to be a better word but it’s a sulky pulled by a dude powering a bike.

Only in DC — for my first time ever — for a long weekend, I wanted to see as many things as possible. Usually, when travelling, I find a pub and piss days away, talking to locals. It’s a good way and my fave. However, I will play tourist on rare occasion!

This was one.

After hitting a few of the Smithsonian aggregate of museums, I REALLY wanted to see the Lincoln Memorial, at least. I felt it my civic duty. Really.

I was getting faint after the 5 hour, several circles of Hell (not all 7 but most) tour of the National Gallery. I talked the going rate of $75/ hr down to $15 for a 20 minute ride.

Several sites were pointed out but it was so bloody windy, I heard perhaps 1/2. I did get to see the White House, though!

Sort of. Welcome to post-911 America. If you can zoom and and squint, that’s the South side.
