The Drinkers Companion Guide to Your F***ed Up Summer – Week 6 Recipes

Slow Language is a beautifully aching love song written and sung by Jason P. Krug.  In his honor, I created the Slow Language Cocktail which includes Sambuca, the alcoholic beverage of choice on the rare occasion Jason does imbibe.  The sweet anise flavored liqueur is a great compliment to the smoky and mellow components of Cafe Patron.  Drink more than one of these and I assure you, your language will become slow.

Wonder why it was The Last Record Party?  These were being served.  The cupboards were cleaned out for this cocktail.  It sounds like an odd combination but makes for a really smooth and none too sugary beverage.  The shiny, black color is pure vinyl, baby.  “Shimmy and shake!  Stutter and break!  Leave it all on the dance floor!”
