Christmas Wish List: Bartending Skills

Every day in December (work schedule permitting) I plan on posting one thing from my official DevilDinosaur Christmas Wish List (patent pending). Why? Because I can.

I wish I knew how to make a drink. I know how to make a rum and coke and that's about it. If pressed I can make a mojito if you give me a bottle of mix with instructions on the side. I'd like to be able to make my own old fashioneds, or manhattans or maybe try one of these moscow mules all the hip kids are drinking these days.

I bought a bottle of moonshine from work the other day just because it had a recipe on the side for a boozy cider that seemed totally doable. Make your spiced cider then add the moonshine. Sprinkled cinnamon on top was an option, one I'll probably never use because I don't even know how to sprinkle cinnamon.

Someone gave me a cocktail book for Christmas this year, maybe that's the kick in the butt I need to learn how to make fancy drinks. I'm in my 40s now, if Gilmore Girls has taught me anything you're always supposed to have at least one cocktail before dinner.

Also it taught me that Rory is kind of an awful person.
