RIP Yellow

For her second birthday in September, our daughter was given an aquarium containing two danio fish, whom she quickly named Yellow and Red. This morning while I was cooking breakfast, she poured her milk in the tank. "It looks cloudy," she said. I took the fish out, but sadly Yellow did not survive. (He has not been looking healthy for the last week anyways.) What does this have to do with alcohol?

Well, after Alex came home and we gave Yellow a proper flushing in the toilet, we honored his life with a drink. Here is the recipe for our creation: Yellow Danio, an adaptation of a Delilah.

1 ounce gin 1 ounce citrus ginger flavored vodka 1 ounce orange flavored brandy 1 ounce lemon juice 1/2 ounce simple syrup

Shake with ice in cocktail shaker and pour into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with a lemon slice.
