the e.e. cummings: a poetic cocktail

September 27, 2016

 

Outside of my best pal, Jack Morgan, e.e. cummings is my favorite poet. And he was also a novelist, playwright, and painter (like someone else I know). Today's drink I created in his honor...

 

 

i will wade out
                        till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
                                       Alive
                                                 with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
                                       in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
                                            Will i complete the mystery
                                            of my flesh
I will rise
               After a thousand years
lipping
flowers
             And set my teeth in the silver of the moon

 

 

the e.e. cummings

2 parts Aperol  
1 part Beefeater London Dry Gin
1 part Fever-Tree Ginger Beer
½ part fresh-squeezed Lime juice

 

Shake everything but the Ginger Beer over ice, then stir in the Ginger Beer. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist and disarming verse.

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
                                                      ― e.e. cummings
