I guess my pace has slowed as I continue to link every Boston neighborhood to its own version of the Boston sidecar. My apologies for that, and apologies for overlooking Roxbury thus far. For I live so far to the east in the East Fenway that the view from my shoebox of an apartment is actually of Roxbury. And how can I look to the east at Roxbury every morning at sunrise and not give it its own Boston sidecar? BTW, I’m giving the rum a little more of a change up in this one and find the mix most satisfactory.
1.5 oz brandy ( I used E&J here, feel free to upgrade)
1 oz dark rum (using Mount Gay Black here)
.5 oz overproof rum (this Wray & Nephew accent is so important, mon…pure 146 proof Jamaican love)
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz lime juice
Combine in shaker over copious ice, shake for 15 seconds, serve up in chilled coupe.
Enjoy in moderation, and thanks my good neighbor! Lots of good things are happening in this ‘hood and I appreciate the sweet view.
I am a citizen of a country which is the biggest promoter of gun violence and gun death in the world. And I don’t like that, especially where children are concerned. We were given an abhorrent example of gun violence last week, when so many Connecticut first graders roughly at age 6 were shot multiple times and murdered in their school classroom by a psycho using his Mom’s assault weapon (after having killed Mom previously at home with said assault weapon). By the way, Mom taught Son how to handle those lethal guns at local firing ranges, being an avid gun collector herself…yet she struggled with handling a psychotic son at home, as if psychosis and guns were okay together,
I’m horrified, at a loss for words, but still wondering what we as US citizenry can do to stop such violence in the future. Yes, let’s devote more public monies to mental health intervention, but better yet let’s control the proliferation of assault weapons outside law enforcement and the military. We must reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons. No one outside of the Armed Forces and local Reserves need access to these horrible aggressive weapons. I’m totally in favor of banning them.
