Using people's usernames for inspiration is also fair game. For instance,

Randompaui can be a Hawaiian fusion dish. Anne Whateley can be a booze infused breakfast pastry. NewFatMike can be made using copious amounts of plant or animal fats. Suspect Bucket can be a drink for consumption in sorority's and fraternity's only.

We can't stop here! This is cat country!

I made my version of the Fitzgerald. Once I finish typing this post up, I'll Google what the actual drink is.

In retrospect I'm pretty sure the drink is (like most cocktails) named after some random bartender or bar owner who came up with it and has nothing in common with my choice, but in lieu of any information I've decided to emulate F. Scott Fitzgerald. Being contemporary to the prohibition and famously writing a novel set in the time period, I chose gin as the main liquor. To evoke the green light of The Great Gatsby, I chose creme de menthe. This would do well with some green food coloring to better evoke the color, but I had none available.

My recipe was partly based on the Blue Ice Martini, which I found through a Google search of existing gin and creme de menthe recipes.

The recipe I settled on:

* 2 ounces of gin
* 1 teaspoon of creme de menthe
* 2 ounces of soda water



Without any green food coloring, I decided to get some of the color and increase the complexity of the drink by using a very nice bourbon barrel-finished gin from the St. Augustine Distillery. I just bought this last Saturday and I've been itching to try it out after sampling it in the store. Their regular gin is an excellent small batch gin made with a neat botanical mix (including some citrus, I think orange peel included because Florida), but the bourbon barrel gives it a fullness you don't normally get.



My initial attempt, which did not include soda water and used 2 teaspoons of creme de menthe. Not gonna lie, I came really close to vomiting as soon as I downed this shot. The mix of flavors (especially the mint) was incredibly strong and completely undrinkable, at least as a shot.



With the creme de menthe reduced to 1 teaspoon and another 2 ounces of soda water added to dilute the mixture, it comes out perfectly drinkable (and looks a little more green than brown). It helps to choose a strong gin, as it allows the botanical flavor and the mint to intermingle. The carbonation and dilution reduce the intensity of the alcohols very well. While I don't think this is my cup of tea, I can see some people really liking this.

Now, to look up what an actual Fitzgerald is....

....at least I got the gin right.

I made an actual Fitzgerald. It actually tastes decent? In the hands of a good bartender it would be a nice alternative to an Old Fashioned if you want something sour.

Beverage suggestions:

Prairie Fire
South Dakota Martini

For the Prairie Fire, I'd probably use whiskey as a base (since the name makes it sound like something from the Old West). Perhaps an Old Fashioned with a dash of Tabasco?

For the South Dakota Martini, it almost sounds like an ironic name about South Dakota being incredibly unsophisticated. Moonshine and lager shot?

Sushi was originally only made with freshwater fish. You can still get the old school stuff in some places around Lake Biwa.

I'm not saying you should, but it is interesting.

Easy.

The modern recipe would be an amalgamation of a made-up-but-maybe-real method for brining and basting pork roast using 10 beers and a made-up-but-maybe-real medieval dish called "tien boars".

Tien boars (ten boars) would be a pork version of turduken. A dish where dried fruit and pork sausage stuffing was served inside of a deboned deskinned beheaded smoked piglets, served inside of a rotisseried, deboned pig. It would be served as a centerpiece for the modestly wealthy and as an appetizer for the wealthy.

A modern version of this would involve apple and pork sausage stuffing inside a smoked tenderloin inside of a beer-brined, skin-on pork roast (9 cans), regularly basted with a baste that includes 1 can of beer.

Serve on large slices of toasted rye bread, then cover both with a roux made from the meat juices. Best accompanied by Sue Perkins and Giles Coren along with copious amounts of alcohol.

It's 1:37 am, I just made a run to the grocery store for everything I'd need to make doom rooster. Including jerk seasoning for some reason.

Ingredients include:

2 kinds of potatoes
Celary
Onion
Garlic
Red bell pepper
Butter
Whole milk
Seasoning
Corn
Tortillas

I already have salt, pepper, and oil at home. Let's do this! Monday! Because today involves family stuff.

Edit: also cheese, but not lettuce. Guess I'm going the taquito route.
