A Meme, of Sorts

If you had a drink named after you, what would be in it?

Example, the famous-in-our-crowd Delilah: one part Meyer lemon juice, one part Cointreau, two parts gin (stored in the freezer). Shake with ice and strain.

I'm thinking for me: something like Thai red tea, the kind they use to make the ubiquitous "Thai tea," but barely sweetened, plus rum; shake with ice and strain or not; with some thick cream floated on top a la Irish coffee. But I'd have to road-test it first.

Or, on certain days, what my Russian History prof used to describe some eastern-hordes invader or other, or maybe the original Black Russian: equal parts vodka, kerosene, and Tabasco sauce.

Hmmm...it would have to be incredibly sweet -- maybe Amaretto with brown sugar -- but with a bite...so add a tablespoon of ginger. Or a jalapeno pepper. Maybe both.

How about Ginger Lemonade - with vodka, maybe.

Hmm, I'm getting good ideas here, particularly after coming back from a photo session yesterday with a bag of Meyer lemons.

"Healthy Chef Alex" has a recipe on her site that is the more involved version. But I'm lazy and usually just grate some ginger right into the lemonade. Mmmm.
