Tonight I did a Google search on Florence Fabricant. The first link I clicked on brought up this quote, which is just too rich. Something worthy of the illustrious Lucy van Pelt in her role as a 5 cent psychiatrist. Can't you just see it tumbling out of her mouth in a big cartoon bubble?
Florence, it's so true. So true.
Oh, and this is what I came up with when I did a Google image search for Lucy van Pelt. Huh?
I suppose that given the leading nature of my post title I should offer up a recipe for a drink. Alright then, in keeping with the spirit of this somewhat giddy post, I offer you a drink to make you giddy.
The Little Elevator
Make a kir royale with a splash of cassis and some chilled champagne but leave a half inch space at the top of the champagne flute. Top with citron vodka. Don't stir, just sip.
