Sunday lunch around here is quite entertaining. Belle and I invite friends and family, and today, was quite enjoyable. The menu was pork chops with rice, purple hull peas, okra and tomatoes , and cornbread. Assorted soft drinks.
Today, in addition to the children and grandchildren, we had a Registered Nurse, an old cop, a PhD educator, and a pharmacist. Oh, and a prison correctional officer. An eclectic group.
After lunch we were talking about past jobs, and bar tending came into the conversation. I told them about a cocktail I used to make at the country bar where I bar tended. The Colorado Bulldog. Of course, the ladies demanded that I get up and make a round. Because... cocktails.
1.5 oz vodka
1.5 oz coffee liqueur
1.5 oz Irish cream
In an 8 oz cocktail glass, add ice and the booze. Fill nearly to the brim with milk, then add a skim of Coca-Cola to the top. Shake or stir. Be advised that this is a three-shot drink, so pace yourself.
