Cape Cod

Now that the summer holidays are behind us it still isn’t too late to enjoy a drink in a great weekend getaway place such as Cape Cod. For one thing the crowds will be thinned out so that at least you’ll be able to walk around without bumping into a lot of tourists. Although there may be a chill in the morning air it should be enjoyable (unless of course you’re a hot weather person, then you should be in Miami, not Cape Cod), go for a long walk along the beach or take a nature hike, then stop in a tavern and order a Cape Cod – what else were you thinking?

4 parts cranberry juice to 1 part Vodka, pour into a highball glass, add ice and stir, garnish with a lime wedge or two.

 

For the un-Un-Whined crowd: substitute lime juice for the Vodka, garnish with a lime slice instead of a lime wedge.

Black or White Russian

The Un-Whined series is for those that are wanting a change from the traditional glass of wine and would prefer something a little different.

For a Black Russian combine 2 oz of Vodka with 1 oz coffee liqueur, shake and pour into an old fashioned glass, no garnish necessary.

For the White Russian repeat the above ingredients and float 1 oz of cream or half & half and stir with a cinnamon stick and plenty of ice.

For the un-Un-Whined crowd combine 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, 1/4 cup cream, milk, or half & half, and 1 drop of vanilla extract into a blender. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds. Pour into an old fashioned glass and garnish with a white chocolate Hershey Kiss.
