A Classic Drink to Celebrate the iPhone 4
Yes, it took all day to place my order. Yes, I even stayed up until 1 AM last night to try to be one of the first to order--hoping against hope that everyone would just wait until morning. And, yes, in CA you get taxed on the UNBUNDLED price of the phone (ridiculous). But, I placed my order and now I can sit back and relax.
What better way to relax than with a delicious classic cocktail? So, I give you the Sidecar. Now, to be true to the name, you should always have a little left over and served. . . on the side (thus the name), but I don't throw a screaming fit if I order one and don't get my "sidecar." I just enjoy the delicious citrus yumminess of the drink and pretend I'm at the club, or at the beach, or in my panic room. You get the idea: away from my troubles.
I hope you can enjoy one soon.
