I'm very proud of myself. After having 2 martinis and wanting something new to put my last 4 ounces of gin in, I scrounged around the house for something to mix. I finally came up with a gin Rickey: tall tumbler filled with ice, 4 ounces of gin, topped with San Pellegrino, about 2 teaspoons of powdered sugar, and the juice of 1/2 a lime with the lime thrown in. It's just the amount of refreshing I was looking for.
"If we take habitual drunkards as a class, their heads and their hearts will bear an advantageous comparison with those of any other class. There seems ever to have been a proneness in the brilliant and warm-blooded to fall in to this vice." - Abraham Lincoln in an address to the Washington Temperance Society in 1842
