Someone recently posted this anonymous comment to my Cape Codder rant:
"Only losers call them Cape Codders. Same losers that order a Cuba Libre and leave a shitty tip."
I felt this deserved a more public response than being buried in the comments: Perhaps the reason why they're leaving you shitty tips is because you're a shitty bartender who doesn't know the difference between a rum & coke, and a Cuba Libre.
To start another rant, it's been ridiculously hard to get a proper drink in this town. Look, I'm good at my job. If my job was to make and serve drinks, I would make damn well sure I knew what I was doing. If you learn how to make a good martini and a good manhattan, you're already 2/3rd's of the way there. And goddamnit no, when I order a martini, don't bring me a vodka martini unless I ask for one. You people are the gatekeepers! You hold the keys to the kingdom! It is your duty to harass people who think daiquiris are supposed to be frozen, and make sure there's an ample supply of REAL preserved cherries behind the bar.

I was just about to order some hipster karma from the internets, when I saw just how much more expensive it is as compared with the genuine, evil corporation version. Brian was quick to point out that it's listed in Canadian dollars, "which is like, 37 cents."
It is here that I will spare you my lengthy leftist polemic, and simply point out that USD = CDN. That's right Virginia, as of this writing, the greenback is trading against the, uh, maple rag? at practically 1:1

Well, I'll be a
monkey's newborn baby's uncle. Jake was born today at 10 am EST, and is 7lbs. or so. Something like that. You know. Babies.

Well, spurred by Jennie's comment to the previous post, I just did a quick informal vodka tasting. All were drunk neat. Of the 5 brands I happen to have in the house, I'd rate them thusly:
1. Origine (French) Hm.
1. Smirnoff (American) !
3. Absolut (Swedish) Bleh.
4. Monopolowa (Austrian) Ugh!
I'm pretty surprised that the cheap bottle of Smirnoff tied with the soi-dissant "ultra premium" Origine (which I've not tried before, and likely won't get again). Monopolowa, which I didn't like, scored the highest in a 2003 contest, tying it for first place with Stoli. Surprised again. Will need to do a double blind next time. Unfortunately, I don't have any non-flavoured Stolichnaya or Ketel One on hand, which is what I usually drink at home, so no baseline. Must revisit soon.
Whew. I'm exhausted. Time for a martini.
*I didn't actually drink this; no one should. We keep it in the first aid kit.

New pet peeve: when someone orders a "vodka cranberry." No. NO! The drink you are asking for is called a Cape Codder, it is a good drink, and you will order it as such. If you're not secure enough to call it that, you don't deserve to have one. It's like asking for "peach schnapps & OJ"—complete and total denial.
