Cocktails for a Tuesday

by Tim Barley

Today in SoCal, it’s gray and foggy, so that’s what we’re drinking…

This is considered "gray" today.

This is considered “gray” today.

Looking outside the window today, it’s just begging for us to turn on the DVD player (yes, we are “old school”) and pop in a movie. But, it’s also a great day to imbibe a cocktail or two (or three) while watching said movie. We searched far and wide for a cocktail to make today that would keep us warm and refresh us as well. So, we found a variation of the classic cocktail the “Dark and Stormy.”

It’s calle the “Gray and Foggy.”

Here’s to curling up on the office couch under a blanket and watching a movie today.
