The Mikes head to the rolling hills of Iowa to see what horror is down on the farm in Daniel Kraus's YA book Scowler. It sure enough ain't no visit to Green Acres where kids are brutalized, stuffed animals seek revenge and meteors fall out of the sky. Keep Manhattan and just give me that countryside.
It sure is Cocktail Time!
White Special Drink
1 egg white ( very fresh)
1 1/2 shots of good Gin
1/2 shot of Domaine de Canton
1/2 Shot of Creme de Violette
A squeeze of lime or a scraping of vanilla bean one or the other, your choice.
Put into a shaker with lots of ice. Shake well to get the egg frothy. Strain into martini glass and garnish with an orange peel. Chin Chin.
