Gavin Drop

In honor of Gavin Newsom running for Governor of California, a gay bar in Sacramento called the Depot has created a drink in his honor -- dubbed the "Gavin Drop." How does one make a Gavin Drop?

Blue Curacao
Simple Syrup
Sweet and Sour
Smirnoff Melon (because "he's a honey")

To my bartenders in Cincy -- expect me to order one. Soon. Seriously. No really. I need a drink, STAT. (Although what, exactly is "simple syrup" in a liquor drink?)

Simple syrup is just made by boiling four parts water to five parts sugar. It's a good way to sweeten cold liquids, because it dissolves more readily than plain sugar. You'll see it a lot at coffeehouses that serve iced coffee.

Dan's got it. It's like properly made southern sweet tea only without the tea.

That drink sounds delicious and I want one right now.

Someone needs to whip up a batch and invite me over. A few of those, a balmy evening, jazz playing, steaks on the grill -- and no telling what I might be willing to do...

and it's a bitch to make on the fly for most bartenders on a busy night.
