The Monkey Gland

Today was again a day for a drink. Because I had 2 kilos of fresh oranges cramping my tiny kitchen I chose to make some Monkey Glands. The Monkey Gland is an age old recipe invented in the 1920s in Harry’s Bar in Paris. At least that’s what Wikipedia says. It is made of 1 part gin, 1 part orange juice and a dash of grenadine and absinthe each. It allegedly is named after a surgical technique of grafting monkey testicle tissue into humans (?). Sounds grose, but the drink is lovely and refrrshing.
