If you would ask me last year what my favorite drink is it would be a Scottish single malt whisky maybe because of it's caramel color, strong earthly tones that remind me of a misty autumn day in the forests, a mystic beverage with a syrupy liquid, a spectacle in a crystal glass, where the light and liquid sings a duet. A whisky that makes me long for dry sausage as dry as peat ground in Hatfield, a sausage if Chaim Soutine would be still alive he would eat every weekend. But if you would ask me now, what my favorite drink would be, it would be a cocktail full with dark fruit, undefinable herbs and a lot af sweetness, a sweetness that Mary Heilmann would make a detour on her way home. With a lot of ice so the glass would condensate like drops on fresh lettuce.
