You clicked your heels and said "There's no place like home" three times. The magic in those ruby slippers sure seemed sweet. And now you're back in Kansas; but frankly after the technicolor splendor of Oz, Kansas isn't all that. There's chores and the farm and Auntie Em. . . and that's about it. Those ruby slippers seem a little bitter now, and maybe you want to be back in Oz. So this drink's for you Dorothy.
This drink takes off from the Ruby Slipper, linked above and seems a fitting drink for the age.
Bitter Slipper. Ingredients:
- 3 oz. Crown Royal (or other slightly sweet whiskey such as Bulleit Frontier Whiskey)
- 2 oz. 7-up or lemon-lime soda
- 3/4 oz. of Grenadine
- 3 shakes of Angastoura bitters
Mix over ice in an old-fashioned glass, garnish with maraschino cherries. Toast Dorothy.
