From the First Family of Fine Liquors comes the Schenley Drink-o-Rama! Summertime is Schenley time!
Most of the drinks on this oddly-proportioned wheel (6.75 by 5.25) are gin-based. That's not much variety. To be fair, though, it includes the Seabreeze Cooler: creme de menthe and carbonated water. How's that for distinction? Or perhaps you'd prefer the Hula Cooler? It's made with gin and pineapple juice. That's all. My favorite is the Mid Summer Mist:
Fill large glass with shaved ice. Pour in 2 ounces of Sir John by Schenley. Fill glass with carbonated water.
What the heck is "Sir John"? It sounds like the self-titled know-it-all mixologist you try to avoid at a BBQ.
Check out out the illustrations on this wheel. I love the guy with the dress shoes, blue knee socks and tiny mustache. And what about the guy with the chef's hat at the grill? That must be Sir John.
