My husband's latest contribution to The Encyclopedia of Cocktails is a drink he calls the "Mock Tai." This is how to make one:
In a double old fashioned glass full of ice, put
Two heaping teaspoons of simple syrup
The juice of half a lemon
Then, almost fill a glass with rum, leaving room for
A splash of sparkling water. Oh, and a lemon slice.
Drink to forget the EXTREME BODILY PAIN of having cleaned house for four straight hours.
My Popeye arms are not happy. They are still sore from the Personal Trainer. They did not want to do a lot of heavy lifting, not to mention heavy dusting and heavy vacuuming.
MY ARMS LIKE RUM.
