perhaps this explains the chilly reception by our “recovering” alcoholic president

A regular reader (one of my few) has recently complained that this blog’s header had promised politics, popular culture, and mixed drinks, and, as of yet, I had yet to deliver on the latter of the three. “Where are my mixed drinks?!? You promised mixed drinks!” he demanded—perhaps after imbibing a few mixed drinks on his own.

Well, fair is fair, and since we are all about the, er, um, truth here at guy2k, let’s rectify the matter by honoring both the promise of my header and the already moribund report from the Iraq Study Group—aka the Baker Commission—at the same time.

The Velvet Hammer

1 oz cream
3/4 oz crème de cacao (brown)
3/4 oz Vodka

Shake well over ice cubes in a shaker; strain into a cocktail glass.

This recipe is adapted from Charles Schumann’s American Bar, which notes that this drink can also be called a Vodka Alexander, even though the drink bears little resemblance to the soon to be senior Senator from Tennessee.
