Of an evening

Terrace life, light past 8pm and dinners outside seem a long way away. 

In the meantime, in the kitchen, it's gin, cassis and lemon juice, for a Mississippi Mule - recipe found in an old, foxed bartender's book in my father's study. Years ago, before reading that book, I shook this combination up, naming it The Paintbrush, my great invention, before discovering that it existed officially, as the Mule.

But my name's better.


  1. What a gorgeous glass !

    What is your recipe for using those ingredients? In my advanced age, I am thinking of learning how to make a few delicious cocktails.

    1. I'd recommend a good old fashioned bartender's manual. They're fun

      My Mule recipe is 3oz gin, 1 oz creme de cassis and 1 oz lemon juice.
