Yeah I know – we are bad at keeping schedules lately – anyways, this week in #arthousecocktails we slightly twisted a modern classic, the Don Lockwood, first mixed by Abraham Hawkins at @dutchkillsbar .
Laughing at clouds
3 cl Rye Whiskey
3 cl Islay Whisky
1 cl Maple Syrup
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
3 Dashes Chocolate Bitters
Stirred on ice, served in a tumbler on a huge ice cube, garnished with a piece of #whitechocolate .
Used #ryewhiskey sponsored by @Freimeisterkollektiv for editorial purpose without conditions.
Simon looked at the clouds and tryed not to yell at mother nature. The grass tickled his ears. The silent noise of an insect that sounded like one that stings came closer and closer. The sun from the sky was already too hot, the ground was way too cold and above all still moist at this time of the day. Simon could physically feel how the grass stains ate their way through his trousers with every small movement he made while breathing heavily and trying to talk his body into stopping to sweat. „Why did we run here?“ he asked his son. „I don't know.“ Peter said. It seemed to be his only answer, to anything. At least in the last weeks. He couldn't blame him. The last weeks where hard. „What do you want to do, once I can breathe again?“ - „Don't know.“ - „Up for some icecream?“ - „It's 10 o'clock in the morning, dad.“ - „So?“ Silence. „Mom would get angry.“ Simon took a deep breath. Suppressed a tear. Summoned a vague smile and a nearly silent „Propably.“ After what seemed to be an eternity of lying in the juices of himself and mother nature Simon heared his boy giggling. „What's so funny?“ - „You see the two small ones?“ he asked, pointing at two clouds. „Yeah?“ - „They look like a butt.“ Simon smiled and nodded in approval. „Cloudbutts are the best.“ laughed his son histerically. „Hell yes, they are.“ Simon chortled. 🌧️
