The San Francisco Chronicle generously gave me a page in last Sunday's special "Inauguration" issue to do an artist project called "Post-its to Obama." I'm happy with how it came out, and I hope you enjoy it.
To those of you who contributed Post-its: Thank you.
it's the kinda mournful sunday night of a calendrically-generous holiday festive period. tomorrow is the (my) first work day of the 2009, the first year of the New Depression! i did some academic speed, accomplished great things, and now need to "wind down"!
so i adapted an old-timey drink which, holidaze help us, was constructed from ingredients which were somehow currently cluttering up my place.
3oz apricot brandy [or tasteful, available eau de vie]
4 vigorous jiggles Peychaud's Bitters
1 generous and hopefully-dissolvable spooge of agave nectar
coupla cubes of frozen water
assemble in order and manner of your chosing. the one i'm sipping right now looks like a waifishly-uncarbonated diet cherry 7-Up you wouldn't take home to Mom (in fact, Variant #1: include splash of Cherry 7-Up)
