Happy Crowleymas to you all!
And a joke:
How many Thelemites does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Two, if they fit.
For tonight, I hope to toast Uncle Al with my own concoction that I think he might approve of:
- Violet Cordial
Fill a wine glass half with Violet Cordial, top to the two thirds mark with seltzer. Float as much absinthe at the top as you can without mixing.
The result is a spooky lavender and glowing green swamp, that gradually mixes as you drink it.
Violets are of Venus, and I would not be surprised if Absinthe was Scorpionic, but I need to check.
Of course, you need Violet cordial. I make my own each spring with fresh picked violets, alchohol, lime and sugar. It turns a brilliant blue, then, like litmus paper, when you add the lime it turns shocking purple.
If you haven’t any, just float some absinthe 🙂
I leave you with a quote:
“May the New Year bring you courage to break your resolutions early! My own plan is to swear off every kind of virtue, so that I triumph even when I fall!”
