Dutch Redhead

IMG_8773.JPG

My late mom, who passed away on this date in 2002, was a Dutch war bride with what she called “fire engine red” hair. She lived in Canada far longer than she lived in the Netherlands, but retained a distinctive accent and a way of mangling words that we affectionately called “Dinglish.” What was normal and good about my upbringing was due to her. I miss her lots.

1 1/2 oz young Genever gin
2 oz sour cherry juice
1/2 oz Cointreau
Generous dash of lemon bitters
