Wyatt invented a cocktail for this evening's festivities. He won't get to have another for awhile, but I'm home and I'm enjoying one now. It's called the Baracktail.

2 oz Genever (Dutch Gin, dry gin will do, but not as rich)
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
1/4 oz Pimms no. 1
Dash Orange Bitters.
Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve with a lemon twist or homemade maraschino cherry.

It's quite tasty. After speaking with Wyatt this evening, I went a little heavier on the maraschino, more like 1/2 oz.

p.s. yeah, I voted for Nader, but I'm still happy about the way things appear to be going...
