Happy Hour: Mamie Taylor

The weather has started to take a turn towards Winter — it's San Francisco and we go immediately from Summer to Winter — and while I love the sound of pouring rain, I'm not quite ready to part with Summer. On days where the gloom takes over, I like to mentally transport myself to a warmer place by mixing up a Summer cocktail. This one — a perfect mix of scotch and ginger ale — is called a Mamie Taylor and was very chic in the early 1900s. Today it's relatively unknown, but I think we should change that. To get the recipe, just

1 tbsp fresh lime juice
3/4 cup ginger ale
Lime slice for garnish

We don't have ginger ale up north. Would 7-up work?

Hah, I'm also with you on that Terry. For us Southerners,Fall means football, football means bourbon and coke. Simple as that. I'm thinking of this drink as kind of a beginner's introduction to Scotch.

I've never had scotch. It confuses me. We drink bourbon down here.

This sounds pretty good! I'd try it, but I never seem to have Scotch in the house.

Yum, it hasn't even felt like fall here in the bay area yet. You're funny. It's finally cloudy today but the forecast says more sun this week. :-) YAY! I don't like winter either. I wish I had this recipe in college. Someone gave me and my roommate a bottle of scotch for our bar and we didn't know what to do with it. This drink sounds good! I'll give it a try (when someone give me a bottle of scotch.)

This sounds delicious. I have recently discovered how much I like scotch, so the timing is great.
