Cocktails and Movies MidWeek Harrumph Day Cocktail: The Madras

by Tim Barley

Man, if feels good to feel good again!

zombieJust before Memorial Day Weekend last Wednesday night, we got hit by a massive, nasty stomach bug that left us like swallowing a spoonful of Drano – “sure it’ll clean you out, but it’ll leave you hollow inside.” But, after much rest and the loss of 10 lbs, we are back in full form but need to rebuild the immune system. So we searched for a classic, easy to make cocktails with lots of vitamin C. Today’s cocktail is the Madras.

We also call it the “HarrumphDay Cocktail.” 

Just what the doctor ordered!

1.5 ounces Vodka (make it a nice smooth vodka, don’t let it overpower the juices)
4 ounces cranberry juice
1 ounce of orange juice
1 lime wedge


Fill glass with ice
Pour vodka
Pour in cranberry juice, then orange juice
Garnish with a lime wedge

Then find a great movie to enjoy it with in the cool comfort of your own home or office.
