Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe


Saving Keystrokes

We have a principle in software development called DRY.  The aim of Don’t Repeat Yourself is to reduce the repetition of information and manual tasks.


My friend JY shared his old fashioned cocktail recipe with me at a dinner party last year.  Since then, numerous friends have requested it.
