23) The Procrastinator

1.5 oz. Beefeater Gin
.5 oz. Lillet Blanc
.5 oz. Lillet Rouge
.5 oz. Lemon

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Update: Ed and I finally had a chance to actually make this drink. It was pretty bad. We tried to tweak it into tastiness with pretty much zero success. The lesson? Don't put a drink on your drink blog before actually trying it. Ed wanted the recipe to just "disappear", but I don't cotton to that sort of deception. Also, Google cache.

Ed and I have absolutely no idea how this tastes. I made it down to the bar a few hours before the end of his shift, and true to his amazing prediction, the place filled up shortly after we had formulated the initial recipe. I'm a little wary of the mix of Lillet's, wondering if the more subtle flavors might get lost in each other and the lemon. We'll be trying this as soon as possible and will report back.

If any of y'all want to give this a shot by all means let us know what you think in the comments. Don't think of it as you doing out job for us, think of it as Drink A Week going Web 2.0!
