The Palindrome

July 8, 2009

No. 209 gin
Lillet Blanc
Viña godeval godello cosecha, 2007 (or any quality dry white wine)
honeydew melon
gomme syrup
Regan's Orange bitters

Shake, fine strain and serve up. Garnish with three small melon balls.

Pal-in-drome (pal'-in-drom): A word, sentence, verse, etc., that is the same read forward as it is backward, as "Madam, I'm Adam". To be perfectly honest, we had a hard time thinking up a name for this one, but we noticed that "melon" and "lemon" almost created a palindrome... so there you have it. Bartender + Nerd = obscure linguistic reference.
