Edith’s Fizz – How I imagine this going down…

Archie – “Edith get me a beer will ya?”
Edith – “Oh, here ya go Archie!”
Archie –“Aw jeeze Edith this ain’t a beer.”
Edith – “I know Archie, I made it myself, I call it an Edith Fizz.”
Archie – “More like a Dingbat Fizz!

Head to the kitchen and mix up your own:

  • 1½ oz white wine
  • ½ oz maraschino Liqueur
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz soda water

Drink Tip: With only a little bit of maraschino liqueur and white wine, there isn’t enough alcohol in this drink to get a fly buzzing… but since you already opened a whole bottle of wine and only used 1½ ounces to make this drink… no reason to let the rest go to waste!

Florida Special – This may be called the Florida Special but it’s not the Florida orange juice that make this drink special, it’s the maraschino liqueur… and why is that so special you ask?  Because it’s only made by one company and it only comes in a bottle one size and that one size bottle made by that one company costs $30! “But Jerry” you say, “Lot’s of bottles of alcohol cost $30 or more.”  Yeah, that’s what I was thinking when I bought it… but, when I got this $30 bottle home and went to make the drink I realised that the drink recipe only asks for ¼ oz… yup, one quarter of one ounce.  Now a bottle of rum may cost $30 but it’s used in a lot of drinks, so I scanned the index in the back of “the book” to see how many other drinks use maraschino liqueur… four… yup, four drinks that use a grand total of… drum-roll please… 1¼ ounces!  At least it comes in a cool looking bottle and I like the design of the label.

Florida Special

  • 1½ oz gold rum
  • ¼ oz Triple Sec
  • ¼ oz maraschino liqueur
  • ¾ oz orange juice

Drink Tip: I realize that I bitched about the cost of the drink and didn’t actually tell you how it tasted… well I ain’t gonna tell ya… If you want to know, stop by my place ‘cuz I’ve got enough maraschino liqueur for everyone!
