No essence of politics goes into this Alaska Cocktail

“As summer wanes and the first cool weather appears, I’ve already switched to an autumn cocktail. My new favorite: an early-20th-century classic named the Alaska cocktail.

Now, just because I’ll be writing about the Alaska cocktail does not mean I will start off with a Sarah Palin joke. For instance, I will not say that, after drinking four Alaska cocktails, you will be able see to Russia from your bar stool. Nor will I jokingly suggest that you buy Bristol Palin an Alaska cocktail if you ever meet her in a club. In fact, I will “refudiate” any claim that I am drinking an Alaska cocktail merely for cheap political humor.”
