MxMo LXV: Equal Parts!
After 6 years of service, our brave host, Paul Clarke, has handed the reins off to me to run Mixology Monday. Since that happened last week, I have set up a @MixologyMonday twitter account that you all should start following. In not wanting to waste much time in getting this monthly online cocktail party restarted, I decided that I would do this one and start soliciting help for subsequent ones.
For this month, I have chosen the theme of equal part cocktails -- those simple drinks where only one jigger is needed despite how many ingredients are added. These recipes have gained a lot of popularity as classics like the Negroni and Last Word have resurfaced, and variations of these equal part wonders have become abundant. Besides these three and four equal parts recipes, I have had delightful two, five, and six part drinks, and I have definitely spotted seven and more part Pousse-cafés in the literature.
Here's how to play:
• Find or concoct a drink recipe that has an equal parts recipe. Garnishes do not count, and if you want to be a non-purist and include a dash of bitters, that is fine too.
• Make the drink and then post the recipe, a photo, and your thoughts about the beverage on your blog or on eGullet's Spirits and Cocktails forum.
• Include in your post the MxMo logo and a link back to both the Mixology Monday and Cocktail Virgin sites. And once the round-up is posted, a link to that summary post would be appreciated.
• Post a link to your submission in the comment section here, or send an email to yarm-at-verizon.net
The due date is Monday, September 17th which I will interpret as whatever gets posted before I awake on Tuesday the 18th (yes, I will accept late entries but a deadline as a symbolic form of structure is needed for this sort of cat herding).
