Philly cocktail ← FREE KRAUT!

Philly cocktail 60

My old friend Nick (formerly known on AN as “Nick”) is in Philly. He suggests:

The Full Count

1 1/2 oz Root
1 oz Lillet
1/8 oz creme de cacao
3/4 oz lemon juice
1 sour cherry preserved in Maraschino liqueur

Root is almost overwhelmingly flavored – sort of like an 80-proof bitters. The Lillet cuts it and adds sweet tones, the lemon cuts all of that spice with acid, and the creme de cacao rounds out the flavors. I added the cherry because it’s a little like a ball.

I’d have gone with a soft pretzel fermented in stale Genesee Cream Ale and called it “The Shibe.”

It’s not often the A’s look to have the better starting pitchers in a series. Enjoy!

    Apparently Sunday we might see our old friend former Athletic Henderson Alvarez! Oh how fondly I remember his time in green and gold.

    That’s fucking awesome, really happy for the kid. Might turn out to be the pinnacle of his career, but tonight, he’s the man.

      2 hits, 7 Ks, 0 walks, game score of 97

      Phillies or not, that’s a hell of night.

      Per the postgame show just now it’s the third longest MLB HR of the year at 483 feet (tying Pinder).

      For example, you just missed an errant pick-off throw.

    Canelo commanded respect, but Golovkin won that fight. Draw decision was weak AF.

    A sweep would have been better for keeping the Giants from the #1 pick.

          He’s from that famous football juggernaut in Iowa City, that produced other NFL greats like Chuck Long. What could possibly go wrong?

        • MikeV MikeV Sep 19,2017 9:11 am || Up

          Get excited about the defense. The offense is basically Hyde and a bunch of placeholders.

          And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

          Thanks, and go As.

          • nevermoor nevermoor Sep 19,2017 5:21 pm || Up

            The defense has proven it can’t stop a terrible offense when on the field for 45 of the 60 minutes (which, unless we can get Hyde two 30+ yard runs a game, seems likely to be common)

      The hot rumor is he’s going to be given the Lambs on the short week and if he’s still awful it’s Beathard time.

      And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

      Thanks, and go As.

      • nevermoor nevermoor Sep 18,2017 10:20 am || Up

        Well, at least the protection was generally OK against Seattle, so Beathard might not lose the first five years of his career the way Alex did.

        I was shopping at Whole Foods yesterday near a seemingly non-creepy white dude in a baseball cap from some Trump golf club, talking on his cell about how the use case for his startup is so good but that it is failing because of “the liberal laws.” He is probably just who she is looking for.
