r has not seen his dad on father's day since he can't remember when, and i haven't been away from my dad on father's day since i can't remember when. and since r's dad got crepes (savory and sweet) in person, i'm sending my dad a drink through the magic of the intra-net.
THE VESPER (bond's martini)
in a shaker, combine:
three measures of gordon's gin (bond says gordon... we like plymouth)
one measure of vodka
half a measure of lillet
five cubes of ice
shake (godsakes, don't stir!) very well until it's ice-cold, pour, and add a large thin slice of lemon peel (use that little zester tool i gave you).
DRINK. and wish yourself a happy father's day from yo' alkie daughter.
(ps: more on where the hell i've been tomorrow) (edit: this weekend.)
