In response to my post about the start of hurricane season, a reader, Fifi Flowers commented:
Wow... you live in hurricane season area... I live in never know earthquake season... I wonder if there is a earthquake mix or drink?
Yes dear Fifi there is an Earthquake Cocktail (try it out and let me know what you think):
The Tremblement de Terre (or "Earthquake") Cocktail has been attributed to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the French painter. The name is derived from its effects, which tend to "shake up" the drinker.
In a wine goblet mix:
- This is another version of the Earthquake. It is sometimes served with ice cubes (on the rocks in a rocks glass), or shaken (use a cocktail shaker filled with ice to chill it) before serving, and pour into a Martini style glass.
- 1 part gin
- 1 part whiskey (Bourbon)
- 1 part Pernod liquorice liqueur
