Fabu sounding tipple from Seattle's one and only Tini Bigs, a former haunt of mine when I worked mere steps away from it many moons ago, obtained by way of Seattle Picks news:
Mind the Gap
2 1/2 oz. Pimm's
1 1/2 oz. Absolut Citron
1/4 oz. Triple Sec
Pernod (just to wash)
Wash a martini glass with a thin layer of Pernod. Muddle a thick piece of cucumber and 2 orange slices. Add Pimm’s, Absolut Citron and Triple Sec, then strain into the glass. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
Purist's may wish to point out that this isn't truly a martini. I say who cares? Bring it on!
The sun is shining here today and its such a nice change of pace. Perhaps it will stick around for the weekend. Fingers crossed.
