This one's for Comrade Physioproffe (but you can have it too)

Okay, the mulling-it-over post is coming soon, but I had to post this -- "had to", because I saw it on Facebook, and I know the Comrade doesn't have any truck with that ("Facebooke bullshitte", I believe). Yet I felt that he would find this useful, and so may some of you, as you wrap up the grading, put away your big-girl or big-boy clothes, and settle into a summer of shorts, sandals, and yoga pants that will allow 8 pounds of weight gain to sneak up on you.  Whatever.  This one (via Thug Kitchen -- image credit is theirs, too) is for you.  In fact, I don't drink, so you'd better have mine, too.

You won’t be stressing this summer if you’re sipping on this tasty glass of general badassery. The antioxidant loaded in theses blackberries will make sure free radicals aren’t fucking up your day. And the bourbon? YOU EARNED THAT SHIT.


5 blackberries

5 ice cubes

1 shot of bourbon

¾ cup cold ginger ale (none of that high fructose corn syrup, aspartame nonsense either. Get good shit that has fucking ginger root as an ingredient)

¼ cup cold club soda (optional)

Put the blackberries in the bottom of a tall glass and mash them around with a spoon. Keep some big chunks because it looks cool. Add the ice and then the bourbon, ginger ale, and club soda. I like adding club soda because it keeps it tasting refreshing as fuck but you can save some cash and just add more ginger ale. Garnish with fresh basil if you are trying to impress somebody.

Serves 1 but invite a fucking friend, no need to drink alone.

Oh, and Comrade? You're welcome.
