Hump Day Happy Hour

Raise a Glass for Gay and Lesbian Pride Month

Back in 2000, President Bill Clinton waved the rainbow flag and declared June to be Gay and Lesbian Pride Month. Later, Obama amended the occasion, making it Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month.

This month, cities across the country host parties and parades celebrating acceptance and tolerance and commemorating New York City's Stonewall riots, an event many consider the beginning of the modern gay rights movement.

So this week's cocktail, "The Hit Parade," is the perfect post-march drink. Get your float on, and then toast to ending discrimination and embracing diversity.

"The Hit Parade"

Ingredients:

2 oz Kubler Absinthe

1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

¾ oz simple syrup

2 dashes of Fee Brother's Orange Bitters

Directions:

Shake with cracked ice. Strain and pour straight up in a coupe glass.

"The Hit Parade" was created by Chef David Myers and beverage consultant Sam Ross of Comme Ça in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
