Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Celebratory Cocktail: Cherry Smack

In addition to the watermelon, I also juiced about 2 pounds of cherries.  Note to self - never again until you buy a damn cherry pitter!  I sliced each cherry in half, and pried out the pit with my fingers.  It took forever!  YET - the juice was delicious.  And I had inspiration from some place deep in my soul...a voice kept saying "whiskey, whiskey" I listened.  And the created drink officially became my celebratory drink for the end of graduate school, and I call it a Cherry Smack!  And keith snapped a photo of me enjoying my Cherry Smack while sitting in the window.  :)

Cherry Smack
3 parts Makers Mark Whisky
2 parts fresh Cherry juice

Combine in a glass with ice and stir vigorously.  Don't shake this drink as it might alter the color of the cherry juice.
