I was originally going to do this test at Christmastime, but hell, it’s always the season of drinking, amirite? Time for a cranberry ginger gin fizz.
It actually took me an inordinately long time to test this because I ran out of gin (GASP!) and I didn’t give enough of a shit to go to the liquor store and get more (DOUBLE GASP!), that is until this week. I started back working full time (at, you know, a job where I have to do more than make cocktails and fuck up my nail polish) and I’m also nursing a wicked shoulder ouchie from Crossfit and/or stress and/or general stupidity (i.e. sleeping on it weird), and gin is just what the doctor ordered… if the doctor is sarcastic and sort of rude like yours truly.
I already had all the other ingredients, including cranberry juice from this one time when I invited people over and someone brought it to make drinks with and I kept it, orange juice that I bought my niece because she hates apple juice now*, and ginger ale that’s been in there for months and is probably only “fizzy” in the sense that it once was fizzy and it still made a tiny “fssshhht” noise when I unscrewed the cap so I called it good.
*A side note story about my niece…
Niece (3 yrs old): I don’t like apple juice. It’s disgusting.
Her mommy: No it’s not.
Niece: It is indeed!
She is smart and hilarious, just like her auntie. (Also beautiful.)
I decided this would be just the occasion to use my penis stemware. (What? You don’t have penis stemware?)
Guys, I don’t know about the color on this. This is before diluting it with ginger ale and it is not cranberry-colored in the least. I don’t know why. I followed the measurements. I swear. Hey, at least there’s a penis.
And it tasted good. (The drink, not the penis.) A little un-fizzy and could have used more gin (heh), but good. Two peens up.
