*Attempting to recreate a drink I had at 44½ (New York City)
**Rhum (Portland, Maine, now closed. This is the only drink I ever ordered there, and it made me so happy. The bartender set the umbrella on fire right in front of you, its charred remains left for your enjoyment. It’s likely I will never attempt to gather these specific ingredients and make it myself, but I should. Posting here just in case I need to find the recipe.)


  1. I cannot afford to drink with you, but I want to.

  2. I know, I think as part of our mythical meet-up we should have a cocktail party, with Indigo providing bartending/bantering services.

    1. Uh oh. Math. Can't banter and bartend at the same time. I'm not that smart.

    2. Helen, mythical? Shame on you!!

  3. I love the name and symbolic burning of the umbrella in the last one.
