How do we know summer is ending? Let us count the ways.

The morning glories are finally blooming.

Good morning glory.

So are the cosmos in the garden.

The garden is getting brown, and the corn is almost gone.

Beet soup is on the menu (with a hint of mint and a dollop of sour cream).

With a Ferrocarril 1922 from Argentina (where it is almost Spring).

What’s that? Glad you asked. I found it on my trip to Argentina.

Ferrocarril 1922:
1 oz Pineral
.5 oz Hierro Quina
.5 oz dry vermouth
.5 oz sweet vermouth
dash of marischino liqueur
dash grenadine
shake. strain into cocktail glass. This is a delicious drink from Buenos Aires in the 1920s. [Cóctel famoso en Buenos Aires en los años 30, 40 y 50, fue rescatado del olvido por el barman e investigador argentino Guillermo Blumenkamp, ésta es la adaptación de nuestro barman Federico Cuco.]
