rainy days and mondays.

Hey Chicagoans,
Remember this Monday and how rainy it was? What better way to combat the weather than making fish tacos with pico de gallo and going to see a free show?

If Tuesdays make you blue, I’d suggest renting a movie, eating pizza, and making pisco sours. It’s pretty easy and very fun. We were, however, lacking bitters.

1.5 oz. pisco, 1 egg white (it’s not gross and probably won’t give you salmonella)

Juice of 1 lemon, (squeeze it)

1 oz simple syrup

Shake it up over ice.

Pour into a glass, add a dash of orange flower water, and garnish with a stem of mint if you so desire… Look at the pretty foam!

** We didn’t have bitters on hand, which are quite important to have. See the comments below.

For you movie selection, might I suggest Delicatessen. Entertaining for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

  1. ohh. good call on the bitters. i was just making sure my readers were on their toes and knew their cocktail ingredients. unfortunately, we were feeling lazy, and didn’t have bitters on hand. so maybe that is why the pisco sour tasted good but not great.

    on another note, i wish i could say i sought out the orange flower water from some crazy source, but i didn’t. i got it at binny’s on grand and wells in chicago. i had also been looking for it for a long time. i don’t know if they always carry it, but i grabbed it just in case they don’t. if you’re not in chicago, i’d suggest an online retailer. if you don’t have a plastic card to buy things on the internet with, i’ll buy it for you and send it to you.
