Comment of the Day

You know how to screw up in this world? Order a drink containing vodka. Just don't do it, and especially not at Anvil, as you can see in this story on CultureMap.

Coincidentally, in the comments section of Joanna O'Leary's post about the Corpse Reviver at Mockingbird Bistro, one reader, vext, offered a simple solution to the vodka problem:

I like what Toby Maloney of Chicago's Violet Hour used to say, "Many times, when requested to make [a drink] with vodka, the bartender or server would recommend that it be made with 'this great botanical, citrus infused vodka we had.' It would then be made with Plymouth gin. Always a hit."
