Breaking News On The Cocktail Front!

Dinner is almost ready, and The Jess mentioned that she had fresh-squeezed, unpasteurized OJ in the fridge. Duly prompted, I sprung into action, and here's what we're drinking as I write this, and it's really good!

Tipsy Orangeade
1.5 oz Tanqueray Ten gin
1.5 oz fresh-squeezed OJ
juice of 1/4 lemon
one teaspoon simple syrup
Schweppes tonic water

Pour gin, OJ, and syrup into rocks glass. Squeeze in lemon juice. Fill glass to 3/4 full with coarsely crushed ice. Top with tonic water and stir gently with bar spoon. Garnish with lemon wedge.
This one is winner-winner-chili-dinner!
