Visionaria Cocktail

This twist on the famous Arnold Palmer cocktail is truly the stuff of dreams. It combines graciously exotic jasmine tea (don’t use jasmine green tea, though: that’s different!) with homemade ginger syrup in a tall glass—and it’s the perfect showcase for Tennessee sipping whiskey.

Completely out of my usual genres, but since it was written by my friend Danielle (who wrote the fantastic "Falling Through The Earth") I grabbed it. So good I may have to add a new genre to my shelves. What an amazing writer.

“I try to make myself realize that I have learned the difference between right and wrong. That there is such a thing as right and wrong. But instead I've learned that these are things - this "right", this "wrong"- these are things that we are told. Simply told to believe. These are things we have not tested. And while most of the things we are told may be true, it is not until we have tested them, taunted them, flaunted them, that we truly know they are right. Or wrong. Or true. Or false. Or somewhere in-the-fucking-between. And I think I know now a little better which is which. And I also know I'll never quit testing this world. I'll never rely on common knowledge. Or common denominators. Or even common sense, for that matter.”

“I am not an alcoholic. I'm a social catalyst. People pay me to illustrate for other partygoers the chemical process involved in transforming from one persona into another drunker, more fun one. It's a matter of going from dull point A to exciting point B. And I'm a raving success at it. So successful that sometimes I wind up at Mysterious Point C.”
