One of the most fabulous things about Portland is my roommate Marco. I met him in Astoria and we became fast friends. Within a week of knowing each other we were wearing kimonos and watching Barbra Streisand movie musicals.
We have so much in common. Love of decorating, clothing, being industrious/crafty, food, laying out and (most importantly to you, dearest tipsy reader) he also loves making a fabulous cocktail.
We’ve been decorating the apartment on somewhat of a budget, so when I came across Your Friends and Mine by Kenny Rogers at a nearby Goodwill. I knew immediately what to do.
AMAZING, right!? My celebrity/pop/vintage/black and white theme is coming together perfectly. Anyway, the point of all of this is the night before Dick Clark died Marco and I were discussing his portrait (top row, fourth from the right). It seemed only natural that we name our creation after him.
Cheers, Mr. Clark. Cheers.
Shake all ingredients but club soda in a shaker with plenty of ice. Strain into a Collins glass with fresh ice. Top with soda and garnish with lemon peel.
