This morning the BBC had a segment on tying knots, which got me thinking about all the knots I had forgotten how to tie since I took a boating class at 15. I suppose I'd better resolve to at least re-master the two half-hitches, which is enough to look like I know what I'm doing on the off chance that I'm asked yachting this summer.
And, the appropriate cocktail?
2 oz bourbon
2 oz cream
Mix bourbon and cream with cracked ice in a shaker and serve in a tumbler, topped up with club soda. Sip with striped shirt and white boat shoes.
