Vernon WadeThere are lots of cooks out there who actually know what they are doing. I pretty much taught myself to cook, out of necessity. I haven’t a clue most of the time, but I do love to eat. 

I have made everything posted here. If I can do it, you certainly can. Someday, if there is enough interest, I will gather all these recipes into a cookbook. In the meantime, in the spirit of dashes, dollops and three-fingered pinches, I present them here for you to try. Let me know what you think.

This layered drink reminds me of dense fog blanketing the field behind our house. The club soda calms the anise flavored Pastis, allowing it to play nicely with the rich caramel and vanilla of the Shanky’s Whip. I think you will enjoy this.

Foggy Meadow




  • 1 oz Pastis
  • 1 oz Shanky’s Whip
  • 1 oz Club Soda
  • 1 ice cube

Pour one ounce of Pastis into a lowball glass. Add one ounce of club soda and ice cube. Gently pour one ounce of Shanky’s Whip over the back of a spoon held against the inside of the glass. Enjoy. Repeat as necessary.
