Party Thyme Cocktail

Gin Limoncello Drinks , Mixed Drinks with Limoncello

Out of all the drinks on this site, this one is the punniest, so I apologize if that offends you. Of course if you're that easily offended, you won't be following my blog for long, so...

This cocktail makes use of the huge piles of herbs growing in my garden. Herbs are by far the easiest plant you can grow in a garden. So I grow huge piles of them and declare myself a master gardener (never you mind the wilted tomato plants and mold-covered squash leaves). Sort of like how I throw four ingredients together and declare myself a master liqueur maker--how you behave in one area of life is how you behave in all of them I guess.

Now, despite having the appearance of lemonade and the presence of healthy veggies in the garnish this is a strong drink. That's where the "party" comes in. So don't have too many or you'll end up prancing through your garden wearing nothing but your party hat. Just...trust me on that one...

The Downton Abbey

Being a guy, I've never actually seen a whole episode of Downton Abbey. I've only walked through the living room on the way to the bathroom while it was on the TV. But in general, "actually knowing stuff" before you speak your mind isn't as popular as it used to be, so I went ahead and named this drink after the show. 

That decision was based on the presence of gin in the ingredients and the way the image below came out. With the fancy tablecloth, indiscernable-but-upscale-looking bottle in the background, and of course the mini-goblet--the whole thing just smacks of aristocracy.

This cocktail also contains Crema di Limoncello, or as we Yanks call it, Limoncello Cream. If you haven't yet used it, you'll find that it also somehow seems more refined than regular limoncello. Don't ask me how the addition of cow drippings achieves that feat, I can't explain it.

Here's a fun drinking game for Downton Abbey (and possibly the ONLY one in existence). Down one of these every time you hear the word "squiffy."

Gin & Juice (2019 Remix)

Gin Limoncello Drinks , Mixed Drinks with Blood Orange Liqueur , Mixed Drinks with Limoncello

When I think of all the disappointed fans of 1990s gansta rap hitting this page, I get a little giggly. It's the little things, ya know?

I'm one of those fans, so I hope this humor is broad enough to avoid any legal issues. Or, you know, Snoop just showing up and kicking my ass some day.

Giving the drink that luscious color and flavor is a heaping helping of blood oranges. Blood orange liqueur and blood (again, Snoop would be unamused by this) orange juice. I don't know who sells that, so you'll probably have to fresh-squeeze it yourself. Sorry about that.
