Mexican Train and Pink Gin

I fell asleep on my couch at 8:30 last night and just woke up at 5 a.m. Luckily, I’d thrown a cape over the back of the couch that I could pull over me, as it was chilly last night.  I guess that’s what happens when I have people over to play Mexican Train in the afternoon and bring the gin out early to drown my sorrows!



Mexican Train and Pink Gin

A minuscule spray of bitters and a little squeeze of lime
helps to make the gin go down in a record time.

It is a regal drink to sip while shuffling the tiles.
When you have no train again, it helps restore the smiles.
It brings an alteration when you feel inclined to pout,
and will make your losing easier to take, without a doubt!


Recipe for soothing defeat: (Also called a “Pretty Tony.”)  Pour gin into an ice-filled rocks glass; squeeze in half a lime and drop into drink. Stir in bitters and tonic.

The prompt words today are spray, regal and alteration. Here are the links:
