Why twelve lemons?

Eight Lemons

I need a drink, so I made this, The Roger Collins. It’s like a Tom Collins, except I named it after everyone’s favorite Robert Redford-lookalike English teacher-slash-student newspaper advisor from Sweet Valley High.

Roger Collins

• 1 lemon
• 1 tsp sugar
• 2 oz Hendrick’s gin
• ice
• club soda

Juice one lemon and strain the seeds and pulp. Mix the strained lemon juice with sugar and gin; pour over ice in a rocks glass (I know a collins glass would be more appropriate but I don’t have any? Weird. TIME TO SHOP!). Top with club soda and clutch in your white-knuckled game seven hand.

    1. He was in a stress-induced fugue state. We don’t even have cable hooked up in the living room, we have to listen to the game on the radio, which is WAY WORSE.

        1. It’s totally nerve-wracking!

          I was actually out walking the dogs when we won, and it was totally silent and then my whole neighborhood suddenly erupted. Dougal was pooping in front of a house and the women who live there all ran out on the porch screaming and I was like DID WE WIN? DID WE WIN???? and they were like YEAH!! and then I started screaming too.
