This week's Resolution Recipe is in honor of July Fourth: The Stone Fence.
It's an 18th c. American colonial drink, so it seemed appropriate.

This week's Resolution Recipe: The Four Horsemen Cocktail.
"To construct this cocktail in foodie terms, the whiskey is the protein of the drink; the Amaro, the starch; the apricot liqueur, the vegetables; and the bitters, the seasoning or sauce."

This week's Resolution Recipe: Lambswool.
In his 1648 poem "Twelfth Night: Or, King and Queen," poet Robert Herrick (Of "gather ye rosebuds while ye may" fame) does indeed stop off for a cup of Lambswool:
Next crown a bowl full
With gentle lamb's wool:
Add sugar, nutmeg, and ginger,
With store of ale too;
And thus ye must do
To make the wassail a swinger.
The name refers to the soft froth looking like lamb's wool )

This week's Resolution Recipe: Election Cake.
The history is that "women would make it in massive quantities to encourage men to vote and come to town hall meetings."
Today you can either celebrate the results with it, or have something easier to swallow. I make no partisan judgments here.

This week's Resolution Recipe: The Slope Cocktail. (A variant of the Manhattan.)

That is a joke I expect a few people will get. That's okay; the humor value is commensurately small.

Bonus Resolution Recipe, partly to make up for some of the past weeks I missed and mostly because I don't want to be several weeks ahead. I have to force my culinary creativity to cooperate with a weekly schedule, or it pouts and will sulk in a corner for weeks before bursting forth in a flurry of activity the next week. So: Apple Shandy.

This week's Resolution Recipe: The Black Prince cocktail.
I've had this at Smuggler's Cove. I have to be in the mood for it, but when I am I really like it. This was invented by the same guy who invented the Penicillin which I also really like. Apparently I must seek out the bar where this guy tends...
