Social distancing in response to COVID-19 has caused a shutdown of bars, clubs, and other such establishments. Without access to certified mixologists, we are now left to fend for ourselves. Unfortunately, our efforts at libationary expression have been severely hampered by impaired (pun intended) access to liquors as purveyors of fine spirits are shuttered or otherwise limited in many regions. Irregular trips to the market and reliance on reduced selection Instacart orders have also narrowed mixing options.
As always occurs during times of great trouble, the indelible human spirit rises above those temporary barriers to reach new heights and to set new standards. Here, where a good Old Fashioned is impossible to find, a phoenix of creative cocktail crafting is surly rising. Please share your concoctions with your fellow Wooters! @davejlives, you were born for this…SHINE!
I will start by offering the humble Captain and Cream. Begin with a pint glass. Pour in your day of work from home Hell’s worth of Captain, and fill reminder of glass with cream soda (regular, diet, caffeine free, whatever you’ve got). Stirring and ice are optional.
