Happy New Sneer!

You can't really celebrate New Year's Eve without either:

1) staying in, feeling morose and re-reading Lester Bangs' acidic essay "New Year's Eve" from Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung, or;
2) going out, having cocktails, and eventually feeling morose. But at least you're with friends.

We're having folks here (it's 90 minutes before 20 people!), so, of course, I'm blogging out the old. And offering you a cocktail recipe:

The Poughkeepsie
(So named because it's somewhat a variation of a Bronx Cocktail, and therefore, proximate, plus Amy was born in Poughkeepsie)

recipe serves 2 (after all, you aren't drinking alone, are you? well, drink two!)

3 shots Gin (Bombay Sapphire recommended)
2 shots freshly squeezed blood orange juice
1 shot Cointreau

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Pour into chilled cocktail glasses. Garnish with a swirl of blood orange rind.
